Event description
Michael Jang and Sandra S. Phillips in conversation with MFA Founder and President Nion McEvoy about "Michael Jang’s California."

About this Event

On the closing day of the exhibition, photographer Michael Jang and curator Sandra S. Phillips are joined by Nion McEvoy for a wide-ranging conversation about the resonances of place, person, and time in Jang’s work. Michael Jang’s California presents a rare, immersive journey through Jang’s career, from the 1970s to the present. This first retrospective exhibition is curated by Phillips, SFMOMA curator emerita of photography and Jang’s longtime collaborator. It assembles dozens of prints from seminal projects as well as ephemera from his past photographic process. What is apparent is Jang’s uncanny ability to capture both the idiosyncratic and the quintessential in a wide range of subjects. The survey is augmented with photographs from the McEvoy Family Collection by Diane Arbus, Lee Friedlander, and Garry Winogrand that situate Jang’s work among his major influences.
