Kiliii Yuyan: On the Sea Ice, We Wear White
Thursday, October 11, 2018 @ 18:00–19:00
Kiliii Yuyan will present a Wish You Were Here lecture titled On the Sea Ice, We Wear White in the Dryden Theatre at the George Eastman Museum.
Kiliii Yuyan is an indigenous Hézhè and Chinese-American photographer, filmmaker, and journalist whose award-winning work has been published by the Nature Conservancy, NPR, Pacific Standard, and National Geographic Traveler. Yuyan's mission is to rewrite the narratives of minority and indigenous cultures—especially those who live close to the land. Against a backdrop of ecological upheaval, Yuyan shows us the essential connection to nature that has kept traditional cultures alive for millennia. His work presents an alternative vision of humanity's greatest treasures—community, culture and the earth.
