Please join 2022 CPA Artist Support Grant recipient, Ben Altman, as he describes his various projects, including his award-winning long-term project, The More That Is Taken Away, and how these projects were key moments in forming his practice. His current project for which he received the CPA grant, I Own This Stolen Land, is a work-in-progress, using photography, text, performance and the landscape in which the artist lives. Ben will discuss the evolution of the project and how it has progressed. Not to be missed!

Ben Altman (b. 1953) trained as an artist by studying Physics, towing icebergs, racing sailboats, and working in commercial photography. A naturalized U.S. citizen of British origin, his work responds to episodes of mass violence and what it means to inherit such histories.

In 2019 Altman was awarded a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship, an Individual Artist Grant from the New York State Council on the Arts and a New York Foundation for the Arts NYSCA/NYFA Fellowship. Other awards include the Houston Center for Photography’s 2015 Fellowship and the 2015 Critical Mass Top 50. He has exhibited widely. To see more of Ben’s work, please visit his website. >
