Artist Talks
Conversation: Gay Block with Jo Ann Callis

Lamy Room, Drury Plaza Hotel, 828 Paseo de Peralta, Santa Fe, NM 87501

Known for her pioneering feminist photography, Jo Ann Callis emerged in the late 1970s after studying a range of mediums, including photography at UCLA under Robert Heinecken. Callis’s proficiency in sculpture and painting enable the artist to construct models and staged scenarios, which she has photographed throughout her career. Among the various themes that emerge in her work are: solitary domestic moments, a sense of beauty, and an attention to the tactile nature of objects and people, all pervaded by feelings of anxiety or tension. Callis, who began teaching at CalArts in 1976, has exhibited her work throughout the United States and the world, including at institutions such as the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Santa Monica Museum of Art, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the MoMA.
