Join artist Niklas Taleb and the exhibition's curator Adomas Narkevičius for a tour of the exhibition Solo Yolo. Providing insight into his creative processes, hinging on decisions to self-print his photographs and build custom frames for each work, Taleb will expand on the concerns that drives his practice, informed by a parallel activity of parenthood, and underwritten by a self-conscious relation to photographic genres and codes including family photography. 
The tour will last 30-40 minutes, followed by an audience Q&A. For full details about access follow the link here. If you have any additional access needs or questions about the tour, please contact Jessie Krish: jessie [at] cellprojects [dot] org.
