Slavick, primarily a photographer whose work is based on issues and ideas, will discuss her art and her curatorial activities. Most recently, she has focused on the aftermath of the atomic bomb. In her presentation, she will include photos of atomic bomb artifacts and images from her book Bomb after Bomb: A Violent Cartography. While at WCU, Slavick also will meet with and have critiques with graduate and undergraduate students.

Her visit is supported by the School of Art and Design’s Visiting Scholar Funds. The event is free and open to the public.
