Together with Napa Valley College’s photography department, di Rosa is pleased to co-present a talk by Oakland-based artist Bessma Khalaf as part of NVC’s ongoing PhotoEye Lecture Series.

Khalaf (b. 1978, Baghdad, Iraq) utilizes photography, video, sculpture, and performance and various processes of degradation (including burning, smashing, shattering, melting, and defacing works) to explore the boundaries of landscape and image. Her work was featured in di Rosa’s exhibition Tongue-in-Cheek (spring/summer 2015). Visit the artist’s website.

FREE and open to the public (reservations not required)

The lecture will be held at Napa Valley College’s Performing Arts Center (Building 100, Room 133)
