Komatsu Hiroko: Second Decade

October 27–December 10, 2022

Joseloff Gallery 

Enter a world of monochrome in this exhibition of recent work by the award-winning Japanese photographer, Komatsu Hiroko (b. 1969). The artist’s first large-scale exhibition in the U.S. will include an immersive photographic installation alongside artist books, photograms, and work on film. Uniting these disparate works is an unparalleled attention to materiality that probes the origins of photography, its relationship to language and knowledge production.

The Presidents’ College is an informal, welcoming community of people from greater Hartford and (thanks to Zoom) much farther afield. We immerse ourselves in short courses and stand-alone lectures on a wide and wild range of topics, including history, literature, STEM, fine and performing arts and current events.  We partner with UHart’s seven colleges and myriad undergraduate departments to co-present courses on matters of the moment in the spheres of business, economics, politics, diversity/equity, and culture.

Our instructors are drawn from the finest of UHart faculty and outside experts, and they consistently enthuse about teaching the engaged Presidents’ College attendees.

Joining this community is simple: choose one or more from each semester’s bounty of courses; register; prepare for lift-off!

Opportunities for civic engagement, volunteerism, and service learning abound.

The Center for Community Service works with agencies throughout the Greater Hartford area to serve as a resource for students, alumni, faculty and staff.
