As a counterpart to our Artist Talk with Jin-me Yoon and Donna James from last fall, Oakville Galleries is pleased to present an Artist Talk with Stan Denniston and Erdem Taşdelen. In this online talk, Denniston and Taşdelen will speak to their works in Two Truths and a Lie and discuss the ways in which photography as a medium can interrogate implicit power structures built into the ways in which narratives are read and interpreted. Together, the artists ask viewers to negotiate photography's privileged status as a record of memory and veracity.
