Luis Delgado-Qualtrough: Bauhaus in a Barrel
Cosponsored by:School of Journalism, MSU Museum, Department of History, Office of Inclusion and Intercultural Affairs, Asian Studies Center, and Global Studies in the Arts and Humanities
From Mexico City to San Francisco, Luis Delgado-Qualtrough has observed and commented on his surrounding world through books, prints and installations with an evolving style rooted in documentary work and into the conceptual world with a sense of humor and the use of the double entendre. Delgado-Qualtrough's photographic work integrates narrative and sequential still images to create idea-driven content.
His prints and artist books have been widely exhibited and are held by many museums, institutions and private collectors, including the Bibliotheque National, Paris, Museo de Arte Moderno de Rio de Janeiro, Centro de la Imagen, Mexico DF, San Francisco Museum of Fine Art and Michigan State University Libraries, East Lansing.
Luis Delgado-Qualtrough's visit is in conjunction with the MSU Museum's exhibition Seeing China: Photographic Views and Viewpoints (January 19 - August 30, 2015), part of MSU's Year of China in 2015. His book Cuentos Chinos Attributed to Dr. Achoo can be viewed as part of this exhibition.
