    Project Basho is pleased to invite Keliy Anderson-Staley for a presentation on her work on Friday, June 24 at 7pm. Keliy is a photographer, installation artist, and collodionist whose work considers issues of shared and personal identity, history, and belonging.

    Her current project, Imagined Family Heirlooms, presents a mixed assembly of found letters, pictures, and other mementos alongside original photographs, photograms, and collages. These arbitrarily connected objects coalesce into a potential, but imaginary heirloom collection, which draws attention to the rootless nature of many American identities as well as a sense of shared identity connecting strangers separated by time and space.

    When: Friday, June 24 at 7pm
    Where: Project Basho Gallery
    1305 Germantown Ave
    Philadelphia, PA


    Admission:
    $10 - General Public
    $5 - Students and Friends of Project Basho

    Just a quick reminder that Keliy Anderson-Staley's lecture takes place tomorrow, Friday, June 24, at 7pm. Keliy will be bringing some original and historical tintypes, an antique portrait camera, and will be speaking about her work in the wet plate collodion process. She will also be running a tintype photobooth at the Print Center on Saturday.
