Paul Mpagi Sepuya Lecture

Paul Mpagi Sepuya Lecture

6:30 PM – 8:00 PM

MFA Visual Studies is excited to welcome New York based Paul Mpagi Sepuya as part of their Visiting Artist Lecture Series.

Paul Mpagi Sepuya’s color photographs demonstrate his active engagement with the history and process of portraiture, as well as his experiments with framing, cropping, and editing. Sepuya portrays young men in his community, making visible the relationships and intimacy between himself and his subjects. By inviting his subjects into his studio space, Sepuya adds his presence to the photographs, even from behind the camera. His naturalistic photographs capture friends, male nudes, and life in the studio. Often Sepuya arranges and re-photographs his prints, collaging two-dimensional works with the objects and people around him. This gesture depicts the artist’s studio as a site where life and art intersect.
