Artist Talk / Sam Taylor Johnson

  • School of Art/Room G-10 "The Pool" 1156 Chapel Street New Haven, CT, 06511 United States (map)
Originally a sculptor, Sam Taylor-Johnson began working in photography, film, and video in the early 1990s. The split between being and appearance in situations where the line between interior and external sense of self is in conflict – has always been in the centre of her creative work.
Taylor-Johnson has had numerous group and solo exhibitions, including the Venice Biennale (1997), where she won the Illy Café Prize for Most Promising Young Artist, and was nominated for The Turner Prize in 1998. STJ
