The MassArt department of Photography is pleased to welcome Mariela Sancari as the next visiting artist of the Fall 2020 Photography Lecture Series. Please join us via Zoom at 2pm on October 13th.


Mariela Sancari (Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1976) has lived and worked in Mexico City since 1997. Her work revolves around truthfulness and fiction in images, using personal narratives to explore the boundaries of the scope of photography as a means of representation. It refers to the affective dimension, yet not sentimental, of autobiographical work, as well as formal explorations of the medium, through questions related to staging and self-referentiality in photographic practice.


Winner of the VI Bienal Nacional de Artes Visuales Yucatán 2013 and PhotoEspaña Descubrimientos Prize 2014, among others, her work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibition in Barcelona, Belfast, Buenos Aires, Busan, Guatemala City, Houston, Jaipur, Los Angeles, London, New York and Oaxaca. Her first book Moisés was selected by several curators and reviewers, such as Sean O'Hagan, Tim Clark, Erik Kessels, Jörg Colberg, Larissa Leclair, Yumi Goto and Colin Pantall, among others, as one of the Best Photobooks published in 2015. In 2017, she published her second book in collaboration with writer Adolfo Córdova: Mr. & Dr. Her new book, The two headed horse. Reenactment in ten acts will be released in 2020.  


All lectures are free and open to the public.


*Please note that all lectures will be held virtually for the fall 2020 semester.
