Ken Gonzales-Day joins Associate Curator of Photography Edward Robinson for a conversation about his new work, PROFILED, and topics ranging from freedom, class and gender to the location of the soul. PAC Prize-winning artist Ken Gonzales-Day lives and works in Los Angeles. His photography-based interdisciplinary and conceptual practice explores the history of the medium, the construction of race, and the limits of representation, ranging from the origins of racial profiling to museum display. Nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, his previous publication, Lynching in the West, 1850–1935, offers a critical look at the legacies of Western landscape photography. Gonzales-Day is the recipient of a COLA 2011 Individual Artist Award, Los Angeles; Visiting Scholar/Artist-in-Residence, Getty Research Institute, J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; Senior Fellowship, Latino Initiatives Program, Smithsonian Institute, Washington, DC; and Creative Arts Residency, Rockefeller Foundation, Bellagio, Italy, among others.
