“Séance: Photographs by Shannon Taggart”

Tuesday, January 17, 2023 - 10:00 am to Friday, February 24, 2023 - 5:00 pm

Organized by the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, in collaboration with the Pensacola Museum of Art. For the past twenty years American artist Shannon Taggart (born 1975 and based in St. Paul, MN) has documented contemporary Spiritualist practices and communities in the United States, England, and Europe. The resulting body of work examines the relationship of Spiritualism to human celebrity, its connections to art, science, and technology, and its intrinsic bond with the medium of photography. There will be a lecture by Taggart on Wednesday, February 8 at 6:00 p.m. in KAB 111. A book signing and opening reception will follow. Sponsored in part by The North America Review. Selections from Taggart's book Séance are featured in the Fall 2022 issue of the North American Review, which has been housed at the University of Northern Iowa since 1969. Gallery Hours: Mon.-Fri., 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
