Tristan Cai, assistant professor of photography, presents a solo exhibition of his ongoing project, A Celebration: The Origin of Life at the CICA Museum in Gimpo, South Korea. The project takes the form of an archive of both fictional and real photographs in the areas of evolution research, offering a critical perspective on the issues of how visual culture shapes our shared knowledge and experiences.

In conjunction with the exhibition, Cai will be conducting a performance lecture, “Understanding Visual Culture through Evolution,” in a session at the CICA New Media Art Conference, Art in the Digital Age, May 31- June 3, 2018.
