Artist Lecture by Mila Teshaieva

For over four years, photographer Mila Teshaieva has documented the transformation of the three former Soviet republics on the shores of the Caspian Sea: Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, and Turkmenistan.

The battle for control of the region's vast oil and gas reserves and the search for a national identity have led to far-reaching changes for the society and environment.

Teshaieva's images reveal an atmosphere of insecurity, where people pin their hopes and expectations on a transformation whose direction remains uncertain. The project takes the viewer on a subtle and complex journey through the promises of a new oil region, raising questions as to the relationship between the state and private identity and the ties between past, present and future.

The lecture will be presented in the Appellate Courtroom of Marquette University's Eckstein Hall (Law School) followed by a reception in the museum.
