ARTIST TALK: RADCLIFFE “RUDDY” ROYE
Defining the Distance Between the Capital and Its Citizens
Jamaican-born Brooklyn-based documentary photographer Ruddy Roye will discuss his work documenting the invisible stories of social injustice—from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to protesters of police brutality—on the streets of New York, New Orleans, Ferguson, and most recently, Nepal. Using Instagram as a visual platform to remove the information gatekeepers of mainstream media, Roye hopes to change the conversation surrounding race, poverty, and identity. Roye has amassed over a quarter of a million Instagram followers and has been a freelance photojournalist for the Associated Press, The New York Times, Ebony Magazine, Jet Magazine, and Vogue. He is also a regular contributor to @everydayusa, @everydayjamaica, and guest contributor to @afropunk, and @newyorkermag since 2006.
Offered in support of Visual Justice: The Gordon Parks Photography Collection at WSU.

ULRICH SALON CIRCLE: Walter Maciel
Juggling the demands of running a vibrant art gallery in the Culver City Arts District in Los Angeles while participating in many national and international art fairs, Walter Maciel defines the new breed of dealers who work across platforms and across continents. The primary focus of the gallery is to promote the careers of emerging to mid-career artists through solo and group exhibitions, museum relationships, art fairs, and important private collections.
