Second Sight lecture with Mariel Miranda

Our annual Second Sight Award is presented to one of our participating Review photographers, based on nominations from reviewers. Each curator, editor, and gallerist at Medium’s annual Review nominates three artists whose work explores new creative avenues and whose ability to speak about their work supports enriched understanding of it. The Second Sight Award recipient participates in our Group f.16 fine print program and presents the first lecture in our annual artist lecture series on the third Saturday in October. The 2019 Second Sight Award is given to Mariel Miranda, who will present a lecture at 9:30am on Saturday, October 19.
