ONLINE—Future / Present: Sam Cannon

Capturing Fiction

Sam Cannon will take us inside her digitally altered worlds that blend fantasy, surrealism, and fashion to create works of art that challenge our perception of nature, the human body, and technology.

In addition to discussing her previous projects, Cannon and special guests musician Benjamin Bailey (Jacob Asher, Joywave) and dancer/musician Quenton (An Only Child) will collaborate on a live music video performance with visuals produced in real time.

Cannon is an artist and director working at the intersection of photography, video, installation, and performance art. Her work has been exhibited at Art Basel Miami Beach, Mana Contemporary, and Spring/Break Art Show. The Impression magazine included her in their “50 Female Creatives Representing the Next Generation of Talent” in 2018 and Wired named her one of their “23 Photographers You Should Know” in 2019.

Free to members; $10 suggested for nonmembers. Registration via Eventbrite
