    Carol Scollans: Melissa Shook: Inside and Out

    Thursday, April 13, 6:30 pm on Zoom

    Curator and UMass Boston Art History Professor Carol Scollans will speak about last fall’s retrospective exhibit at UMass Boston, Melissa Shook: Inside and Out which brought together photography, video works, objects, and ephemera spanning six decades to honor the life’s work of artist, educator, and activist Melissa Shook (1939-2020). Best known for her self-portraits and documentary style photography representing and humanizing marginalized peoples – including Queer folks, the homeless, immigrants, and the elderly – Shook’s practice expanded throughout her career to include writing, book making, drawing, sculpture, video art, and social practice art through direct action and mutual aid projects.

    Scholar, curator, and author Carol Scollans has been a senior lecturer in art history for the art and art history department at the University of Massachusetts Boston for more than 25 years and specializes in the study of American art, in particular, art, artists and collectors from Boston.
