On the occasion of Aperture magazine, issue 198, featuring Jan Tumlir's article, "Femme Fatale: Zoe Crosher's reconsidered archive of Michelle duBois," Aperture is hosting a conversation exploring self-invention and role-playing as told through personal photographs, and what comes of the great "archival theme" in the digital era.

Los Angeles–based artist Crosher and Tumlir recently co-taught a class at Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, on the impact of geography on local forms of artistic production, and they will revisit this topic in relation to Crosher's past work on the city, as well as her more recent series. The discussion will situate Crosher's work in relation to its historical precedents in the art of Conceptualism, the Pictures Group, and identity politics.

Zoe Crosher's exhibition, The Unraveling of Michelle duBois, is on view at New York's DCKT contemporary until February 14, 2010.

Jan Tumlir teaches at the Art Center College of Design and at the University of California, Los Angeles. His book, Desertshore, was published in 2009 by 2nd Cannons.
