Join Albright-Knox Director of Education and Community Engagement Jennifer Foley for a discussion of the exhibitions Tamar Guimarães and Kasper Akhøj: Studies for A Minor History of Trembling Matter and Willa Nasatir.

Studies for A Minor History of Trembling Matter focuses on Tamar Guimarães and Kasper Akhøj's research in Palmelo, a small town in Brazil where half of the town’s inhabitants see themselves as spiritual mediums while also holding day jobs as civil servants.

For her first solo museum exhibition, Willa Nasatir presents new photographs that capture her unique process of staging, photographing, editing, and rephotographing within elaborate sculptural landscapes of her own creation.
