Andres Serrano in conversation with Monique Schafter
Homelessness in wealthy cities is such an extreme form of inequality that it is often easier to ignore it than show empathy. Andres Serrano’s giant portraits from his ‘Residents of New York’ and ‘Denizens of Brussels’ series make it impossible to turn away from his homeless subjects. The sometimes-controversial artist returned to photographing the homeless when he noticed their numbers increasing in his native New York. Join us for a conversation about his work and what it means at a time when Australia is dealing with its own homeless crisis.
