Camera Works Cafe presents Eva Arnqvist
Camera Works Cafe continues its series of "meet-ups" for photographers and photography enthusiasts with a session 6-8 p.m. Dec. 21, at Redux Contemporary Art Center featuring Swedish visual artist Eva Arnqvist.
Arnqvist, based in Stockholm, produces work with a variety of media. She holds a Master of Fine Art degree from the Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm. Her work explores societal change and the influence of ideals, values, narratives, power and place.
Arnqvist has initiated several collaborative and interdisciplinary projects such as “A Room With a View," which explores the post-industrial fate of Stockholm's meatpacking district. She has published several books, including "Grand Tour: A Travelogue" (2014) and "Decor" (2011).
She is in Charleston at the invitation of Vassiliki Falkehag, an installation artist working at Redux and former teacher of Arnqvist.
Arnqvist will speak about her work and ideas, then lead a discussion on the theme, "reason, intention and art." Redux is located at 1056 King St.
