Artist Talk - Larissa Fassler

WHEN: Tues, Sept 20, 2016

WHERE: Stanford Perrott Lecture Theatre, Alberta College of Art + Design

Focused on the symbiotic relationships between people and places, Larissa Fassler’s artistic practice reflects her interest in the architecture of cities and the way in which places affect people, psychologically and physically, and in turn how people’s perception, understanding and use of place is physically manifest in the built environment that surrounds them.
