Robin Resch, artist

Arts Council of Princeton; Humanities Council

Join Robin for two artist talks being offered this summer where she will delve into her Taking Pause project during the pandemic and how she was able to retrieve these thought-provoking photos and insights.

Taking Pause is a documentary portrait project created by Arts Council of Princeton Artist-in-Residence Robin Resch GS ’03 that asks people to reflect on what in their lives feels most essential. The project is on view in Princeton’s Dohm Alley from April-October 2021.

With what do we identify and connect most deeply? What truly matters to us, and why? This series seeks to create telling portraits of people through what is deeply meaningful to them. To make these portraits, Robin asks each participant the same simple thought-provoking question: “what is irreplaceable to you?”

Dohm Alley is located next to Starbucks on Nassau Street in downtown Princeton.

Thursday, June 24, 12-1 pm | Bring a bag lunch and join Robin in the alley

Thursday, July 8, 5:30-6:30 pm | Bring a refreshing beverage and join Robin in the alley

Artist talks are free and open to the public. Seating is limited!

Taking Pause was made possible by Timothy M. Andrews, the Princeton University Humanities Council, Princeton Future, and Bank of Princeton.
