Wasow AU lecture

Oliver Wasow: Lecture at Otis School of Art and Design

June 12, 2017

On June 12th, 2017 I'll be giving a Lecture at the Otis School of Art and Design.

The Lecture, titled Artist Unknown", will be an overview of the various projects I've been involved with in my thirty-plus years in the art world working as a photographer, curator and teacher.  Among the things I'll discuss will be my complicated relationship with new technologies, social media, authorship, ownership, irony, and my on-going, unsatisfied search for creative conviction.

Project - SEEING SCIENCE: Photography, Science and Visual

April 25, 2017

I’m currently involved with the “Seeing Science” on-line project, organized by the University of Maryland at Baltimore County.  SEEING SCIENCE: Photography, Science and Visual Culture is a year-long project whose goal is to explore: the central role photographic images play in defining, shaping, promoting, and furthering science and how photographic images made in and about the sciences impact public opinion, policy and funding, science education, as well as visual and popular culture.

The project can be seen here:


Project - The Rogues Gallery

April 2, 2017

Over the past few months, I’ve been working on a series of portraits of members of the Trump administration.  It’s an on-going project I call The Rogues Gallery.  Monday, May Day, 2017, I'm going to open a one week show of prints from this series at Steven Harvey Fine Arts Project, 208 Forsyth Street in New York City.

Signed prints are being sold, cheap, with all proceeds going to benefit the ACLU.

Images can also be purchased on-line, here:
