Virtually meet and chat with Priya Kambli, the artist behind Heirloom: Weaving Memory with the Now. April 7th, 2021 from 6-7pm.

This Artist Talk is made possible through generous support from the Devereux Family.

Heirloom: Weaving Memory with the Now is on view in MOCA’s UNF Gallery through August 1.

Born in India, Priya Kambli moved to the United States in1993 at the age of eighteen, a few years after the death of her parents, to pursue her education. Carefully stowed within her single, small suitcase was a cache of family photographs which became the basis of Kambli’s creative work—a growing body of images exploring migration, transience, and cultural identity. Her lyrical photographic compositions are not only a rich synthesis of light, pattern, and texture, but also a moving testament to the tangible, archival nature of photography.

Kally Malcom, Associate Professor of Art – Photography, will introduce Priya and moderate the Q & A. The talk will be held on Zoom.

The UNF Gallery at MOCA Jacksonville is programmed in collaboration with the Department of Art, Art History and Design at the University of North Florida (UNF). This exhibition was curated by Alexander Diaz, Kally Malcom, and Christopher W. Luhar-Trice, Associate Professors of Photography at UNF.

Event is free and open to the public, reserve tickets through Eventbrite:
