“User’s Guide to Family Business” artist talk by Emily Peacock with Danielle Avram, Saturday, June 11 at 2pm

Please join us at CentralTrak for a conversation with Emily Peacock and Danielle Avram as they discuss Peacock's newest exhibition "User’s Guide to Family Business" currently on view Beefhaus. 

 

For nearly a decade, Emily Peacock has collaborated with her family to create videos, photographs, and installations that deal largely with her relationships, upbringing in a small Texas town, and personal struggles with identity as a young woman. In her solo exhibition "User's Guide to Family Business" Peacock continues to create intimate work around family tragedy and the formation of new personal relationships by navigating the humor, misfortunes, and absurdity of life.
