Details

Immerse yourself in the stories and histories that inform Kris Graves' and Zora Murff's photography work.

Join us on Thursday, March 21 at 6 pm for an evening of discovery and discussion with both artists and to see their work in Gravity of Perception on view now at CVA.


Kris Graves and Zora Murff both use photography to investigate themes of oppression and institutionalized discrimination. Graves' photography is a form of visual communication in which he speaks on what he views as wrong with American Society and works to elevate representations of people of color in the fine art cannon. He focuses on the topics of race, representation and urban life. With degrees in both psychology and studio art, Murff uses his combined knowledge of human experiences and art to express how images are used to reinforce social and cultural constructions of race and criminality.
