Chicago and Los Angeles-based contemporary artist Curtis Mann, a sculptor and photographer, will present a lecture at the Freeman Auditorium of Tulane University’s Woldenberg  Art Center on Thursday, Nov. 29, beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Mann will be introduced by NOPA member Sophie Lvoff. He will answer questions from the audience after his talk.

Mann is known for photos and sculptures that contain fragments of scenes, via physical manipulation and tearing, and thus draw attention the artifice of photography. His work has been exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago and the Center Pomidou in Paris. Mann’s work has also appeared in publications including The New York Times Magazine.
