The Center for Visual Cultures invites you to join us for a lecture by interdisciplinary artist Joy Episalla. For this lecture, Episalla will discuss their innovative foldtograms, which expand on the photographic
process, the photogram, as well as their video-based work.


Join artist and activist Joy Episalla for a screening of Being and Belonging in the Chazen Auditorium, followed by a reception and conversation in Paige Court. Episalla will discuss their longstanding activist workas well as their art practice. Episalla’s solo exhibit is on view in the adjacent Mayer Gallery.


Joy Episalla is an interdisciplinary artist whose work repositions the dynamics of photographic and moving image practices into the territory of sculpture. They engage a queer/feminist perspective to create open-ended situations that prompt the viewer to slow down and take in the moment — in all its complexity and seeming contradictions.
