When: Sat., Jan. 18, 5-7 p.m. 2020
An artist talk centered around Rob Carter's new works in his latest show, "Smoke Screen," at the Highpoint. Come hear him speak and field questions on his photography and what inspired him. "Rob Carter’s photographs capture the story of tobacco from seed to cigarette as an allegory for our addiction to fossil fuels, and the political and marketing tactics employed by multinationals that keep us hooked on their suicidal products. This exhibition explores the ironic absurdity of society’s apparent death wish, the beauty and grandeur of bright leaf tobacco plants, and the beguiling quality of smoke."
