OCT 10, 2018 ARTIST TALK: CATHERINE WAGNER 7:00–9:00 pm, DANFORTH LECTURE HALL Catherine Wagner will revisit 40-years of her work as a photographer, mining the built environment—urban transit structures, laboratories, museums, theme parks—for evidence of how cultures and histories are represented by material spaces and artifacts.
