Imaging New Haven: Candy/A Good and Spacious Land

Following a joint artist residency at the Yale Art Gallery in 2013, photographers Jim Goldberg and Donovan Wylie began collaboration on a book project to explore New Haven’s urban landscape. The project grew to include writings by Christopher Klatell, Yale School of Law J.D. ’99, School of Law Senior Research Scholar, and writer, and Laura Wexler, Professor of American Studies, Professor of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and Co-Chair of the Women’s Faculty Forum at Yale, and an introduction by Pamela Franks, Senior Deputy Director and Seymour H. Knox, Jr., Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art.

Presented in collaboration with the newly published book, Candy/A Good and Spacious Land, and the current exhibition of Goldberg and Wylie’s work at the Yale Art Gallery, join these two artists and two writers as they explore the concept of the “model city” through the lens of New Haven. 

Attend the preceding Gallery Talk, Guided Looking Session at 4:30pm.
