The Last Resort: Saskia Wilson in conversation
Join us for an in-conversation between CCP Curator of Exhibitions, Madé Spencer-Castle and artist Saskia Wilson, who will be discussing her series The Last Resort, a photo essay of Greece exhibited as part of the inaugural CCP Photo Fair. The Last Resort draws attention to the tension between Greece’s reputation as an ideal Mediterranean holiday destination, and the place it has assumed in the current global refugee crisis. More pointedly, the series underlines our shared humanity, irrespective of labels, privilege, or personal circumstance. Saskia will discuss her varied photographic practice, which spans documentary, fine art and commercial fields, and how her personal work is underpinned by a strong interest in social justice, youth development, education and environmental awareness.
