Join JoAnn Verburg for an intimate conversation about her practice and her piece WTC (2003), part of Five Ways In. Verburg’s photographs, made with large-format cameras mounted on tripods, have been described as strikingly serene and spare, with a finely tuned awareness of movement and space. WTC features poet Jim Moore, the artist’s husband and longtime subject.
With an extraordinary sensitivity to the energy and sensuality of the natural world, JoAnn Verburg creates work that conveys the beauty of its subject and setting through soft lighting, varied focus, and thoughtful composition. Her solo show Present on the Road to Bazzano was held at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts in 2001, and in 2003 she was the subject of a mid-career exhibition and catalog, Present Tense: Photographs, organized by the Museum of Modern Art in New York. In addition, her work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions at Pace/MacGill Gallery, New York; G. Gibson Gallery, Seattle; the International Center of Photography, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; George Eastman House, Rochester, NY; and the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art, Iran.
