Meet the Speakers
Ann Mandelbaum has been consistently involved in an artistic practice using a lens for 4 decades. The process has resulted in traveling museum shows, concurrent monographs and most recently the publication of Matter by Hatje Cantz in 2023. An exhibition at the Fotomuseum, Munich highlighted many of those images. No less immersive have been her more than 40 years teaching at Pratt Institute. An MA in Media Studies from the New School and an MFA from Pratt enhanced a frame of reference that enriched both creating and educating.
