About The Event

Politicians, con men and movie stars are in the identity assembly business. Artists, photographers, and filmmakers are in the image making business. In this talk, artist Josh Gosfield tells the tale of how he commandeered the tools of identity assembly to fabricate the life story of Gigi Gaston, the Black Flower, a 60's French Pop Star who never existed. (Meet Gigi in Constructed Identities, on view in the Photography Gallery through April 26.)
