Curator-Led Tour: Facing Fire

Curator Douglas McCulloh will lead a virtual tour of the Facing Fire exhibition currently installed at the California Museum of Photography. Join in on the live discussion about art, photography, and wildfire.

About the exhibition:

Fire as omen and elemental force, as metaphor and searing personal experience — these are the subjects explored by the artists of Facing Fire. California’s diverse ecologies are fire-prone, fire-adapted, even fire-dependent. In the past two decades, however, West Coast wildfires have exploded in scale and severity. There is a powerful consensus that we have entered a new era. The artists of Facing Fire bring us incendiary work from active fire lines and psychic burn zones. They face fire, sift its aftermath, and struggle with the implications.
