This spring, Parlor Room is proud to invite you to another three visiting artist lectures for our peers, faculty, and SAIC community. Parlor Room is a visiting-artists program by Graduate Students in the School of the Art Institute's Photography Department.

Join us online on Wednesday, February 16th at 6:00 pm for the first event of the 2022 series: a conversation with artist Ka-Man Tse on community, identity, and visibility surrounding relational photographic practices.
