Event Description

Screening of artist /photographer Alec Soth’s "Somewhere to Disappear."

For his project “Broken Manual,” Alec Soth traveled across America looking for people who’ve retreated from society. Some live in mountain cabins, some in caves and others in the desert. It is through Soth’s eyes that we try to understand why those modern hermits want to escape. The photographer shows us a new fantasy, the dream to disappear.

The screening is presented in conjunction with the Wellin exhibition "In Context." Soth’s photographs from the “Broken Manual” project are included in the exhibition.

A post-screening discussion will be led by exhibition curator and Hamilton Assistant Professor of Art Robert Knight.
