Artist Talk: Micahel Alford, Shooting from the Hip: Mexico

The Consulate of Mexico in New Orleans is pleased to partner with the satellite program P.3+ of the biennial Prospect New Orleans  presenting an Artist Talk reception by Michael Alford.

Michael Alford is a multidisciplinary Conceptual artist. His work ranges from documentary photography, large scale public sculpture to Land Art. “My work often explores and challenges the conventional ideas of Art and what can be used to create it.” Michael spent the first half of his life as a member of the U.S. Armed Forces Special Operations. He earned his B.F.A. from Baylor University while on active duty and recently an M.F.A from Louisiana State University. The artwork of artist Michael Alford has been exhibited and found in several corporate, private, national and international collections.

The Artist will be talking about his experience photographing Mexico City and surrounding areas while concealing his camera in a bag pack. Michael has more than 20 years traveling to Mexico and capturing its beauty and wonderful people.
