Event at Catherine Edelman Gallery, Chicago. Tuesday, October 29, 2019.

Thank you to everyone who came out Tuesday, October 29 to Catherine Edelman Gallery for a discussion between Sandro Miller and Mark Golitko! The event was a huge success and our space was completely full with art lovers, photographers, and anthropologists eager to hear about Sandro Miller and Mark Golitko’s experiences in Papua New Guinea.

Photographer Sandro Miller made three trips to Papua New Guinea over a two-year period for his most recent project I am Papua New Guinea, photographing 400 indigenous people from more than a hundred different tribes. Anthropologist Mark Golitko, who just recently returned to the U.S. from a trip to the southwestern Pacific Island, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Notre Dame and Research Associate at The Field Museum of Natural History. Together they shared their perspectives on Sandro’s project as well as contemporary life in Papua New Guinea, creating a lively discussion and Q&A.

This event was part of CEG programming in conjunction with the exhibition Sandro Miller: I am Papua New Guinea, which runs through November 9.
