The McKinney Visiting Artist Series brings prominent working artists from a range of studio practices and fields to the School of Art, Architecture + Design. Artists lead workshops and critiques for students within the department, as well as lectures and gallery talks open to the campus community.

Born in Germany, lives and works in Nogent-sur-Marne, France.
After a degree in Materials Science Engineering, Isabelle Le Minh settled in Berlin in 1989 to work as a patent engineer. She finally left behind her career to attend the École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie d’Arles in 1993. After graduating, she developped a photographic work combining conceptual and documentary approaches. The digital revolution led her to then drift away from photography to reflect upon the image in a broader way.
Le Minh was nominated for the Vevey Book Award (2017), the Luma Book Award (2016), the Niépce Prize (2014) and the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize (longlist, 2012). She is the winner of the Adagp Artist Book Prize (2016), and was awarded of a grant from the National Foundation for Fine Arts (2013). Her work, has been exhibited in numerous venues and festivals, such as The Month of Photography in Montreal, the Rencontres d’Arles, Paris Photo, the Ile-de-France Center for Photography, the Frac Normandy Rouen, the French Society of Photography, the Maison Rouge in Paris, the Mulhouse Museum of Fine Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow, Riga Art Space, Dorfman Projects New York, etc.
Le Minh teaches at the Rouen High School of Art and is also a curator. She is represented by the Galerie Christophe Gaillard in Paris.
