Post-Socialist Landscapes: Presentation by Matthew Moore

August 7, 2022, 3 p.m. PDT
Wende Museum

 

Grutas Park, Lithuania, 2019.

Matthew Moore will discuss his recent photographic project Post-Socialist Landscapes, an eight-year exploration of monument removal and relocation in countries that were at one time occupied by the Soviet Union.

Matthew is an explorer of places, both real and imagined. His photographic process blends research and cartography to create bodies of work that investigate the way history and collective memory is influenced through interventions in the landscape. Past residencies include the Nida Art Colony in Nida, Lithuania and the Joshua Tree Highlands AIR program in Joshua Tree, California. Matthew is the recipient of Maryland State Arts Council Individual Artist Awards in 2015 and 2018. Matthew earned his MFA from Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia in 2009 and a BFA from the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan in 2000.
