View across the Osher Gallery on the lower level of the Walker Art Building during a gallery conversation on November 16, 2016 by Adi Nes, an Israeli photographer who spoke about his work in an interview at the Israeli Center in San Francisco: "My staged photographs are oversized and often recall well-known scenes from Art History and Western Civilization combined with personal experiences based on my life as a gay youth growing up in a small town on the periphery of Israeli society." Presented in conjunction with the exhibition "Art & Resolution, 1900 to Today," the gallery conversation discussed the art historical references in his large-format color photographs from the 2012 series "The Village." On November 15, 2016 Adi Nes delivered the Harry Spindel Memorial Lecture in Kresge Auditorium entitled "Issues of Identity," in which he spoke about his personal artistic language and his use of staged photography to create a reality rather than to reflect a reality.
