Chris Jordan - acclaimed photographic artist & social activist at Evergreen, Tues, Jan 29

Event Dates: January 29, 2008 3:45 PM to 5:00 PM

Chris Jordan is an internationally acclaimed photographic artist and social activist whose work explores the detritus of American mass culture. His newest series, titled Running the Numbers: An American Self-Portrait” (2006-7), depicts the staggering statistics that define contemporary America, in huge intricately detailed panels as large as thirty feet wide. These compelling works invite the viewer to walk up close and see every detail as a metaphor for the role of the individual in our hypermodern society.
