Buzz-Worthy Art Talk with Brian Ulrich
Location: 210 McKnight West, School of Art and Design

Join us for "Over 100 Years: Photographing Consumer Culture -- Past, Present, and Future."

With a keen eye for the aesthetically compelling, eerily uncanny and surprisingly poignant, photographer Brian Ulrich documents the landscape of American consumer culture. Following President George W. Bush's 2001 assertion that, "the vitality of our economy depends upon the willingness of Americans to spend," the artist set out to investigate and record the supermarkets, malls and big-box stores where so many middle-class purchases are made.

Ulrich followed this series of work, Retail (2001-2006) with Thrift (2005-2008), an investigation of the second-hand shops where purchases take on subsequent lives. He concluded the project with Dark Stores (2008-2011), an exploration of the impact of the 2008 financial crisis. Ulrich's talk will address the larger project these three series comprise -- Copia, an endeavor that he describes as an "attempt to describe an economic and cultural trajectory, set in motion in the 20th century and how it evolved at the dawn of the 21st."

A John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship recipient, Ulrich has exhibited his photographs in solo shows at such prestigious venues as the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, and the Cleveland Museum of Art.

Ulrich's talk is in conjunction with the Ulrich exhibition "Stocked: Contemporary Art from the Grocery Aisles," on view through April 14.

Featured Speaker: Lt. Dan Choi
Location: 208 Hubbard Hall

Lt. Dan Choi is one of the most powerful and nationally-known individuals in the fight for LGBT rights. While serving in the military, Lt. Choi was discharged after publicly announcing that he was gay. Choi then began to be very vocal about his views on the "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy. Much of his work contributed to the repeal of the "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy.

As the Anti-Hate and Respect Week's speaker, Lt. Choi will talk about the discrimination he faced once coming out in the military and how he overcame it. Lt. Choi continues to advocate for full LGBT civil rights and veterans' health.
