Spring Speaker Series: Zora J Murff

Thursday, April 18, 2024

3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us for an artist talk with featured artist Zora J Murff as a part of the University of Houston School of Art Speaker Series.

The School of Art Speaker Series invites visiting artists to share their journeys, insights and works with students and community members alike. Distinguished guests offer a range of perspectives on the most pertinent issues facing today’s makers and scholars. The series is a key component of students’ experience at the School of Art. In addition to presenting their work to a large audience of students and community members, speakers spend extended periods engaging directly with students in small gatherings for focused debate and conversation, in formats tailored to their individual practice. Join us in exploring the world of art through the eyes of those who shape it.

Zora J Murff is an artist and educator living in Northwest Arkansas. In 2019, Murff was named an Aperture Portfolio Prize finalist, a PDN 30 honoree, and a Light Work Artist-in-Residence; he was one of eight artists chosen for the most recent iteration of the Museum of Modern Art’s New Photography series, Companion Pieces: New Photography 2020. His work was presented at the 2021 Rencontres d’Arles, France, as part of the Louis Roederer Discovery Award. His works are housed in many notable US institutions and collections including, Studio Museum, SFMOMA, LACMA, and MoMA.

“Zora J Murff. He is Black; therefore, he is.”
