Artist Talk by Eugene Richards
Friday, March 14, 2014 at 4:00 pm
Free and open to the public.

“A conscientious objector to the Vietnam War, Eugene Richards joined VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) in 1968 and found himself working in a community service organization in eastern Arkansas. Running afoul of the Ku Klux Klan earned him a serious beating and numerous threats, but he left Arkansas with a series of haunting photographs of rural poverty that launched his career. For seventeen years, he traveled the world as a photojournalist for the agency Magnum and now focuses on his own projects. Intensely personal and deeply felt, his work also reflects a lifelong commitment to social activism, whether he is photographing the ravages of cocaine addiction, his first wife’s struggle with breast cancer, or the emotional aftermath of 9/11.”

Artist Talk by Michael Kenna
Wednesday, March 5, 2014, 7:00 pm

Free and open to the public.  Seating is first come, first served.

Michael Kenna’s landscapes are unpopulated, simple, serene, and subtle.
Often using very long exposures at night or dawn to soften the hard edge of reality, his minimalist images demand quiet attention from the viewer. Described as elegant, pure, and ephemeral, his work speaks eloquently to the strength of simple beauty.

A public reception will immediately follow the lecture in the Great Hall.”

Lecture by David Taylor

David Taylor received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2008 to support his project, Working the Line, in which he documented every border monument between the US and Mexico from El Paso/Juarez to San Diego/Tijuana. Taylor writes, “My travels along the border have been done both alone and in the company of agents. In total, the resulting pictures are intended to offer a view into locations and situations that we generally do not access and portray a highly complex physical, social and political topography during a period of dramatic change.” In 2012 Radius Books published his first book on the project, titled Working the Line.”

Artist Talk by Frank Gohlke, The Wild Apples of Kazakhstan
Thursday, February 20, 2014 at 5:30 pm
Free and open to the public.

“University of Arizona photo professor Frank Gohlke will give a talk about his current project, a study of wild apple forests in Kazakhstan, funded by a Fulbright Scholar Research Grant. Gohlke’s apple passion dates back 40 years to a commencement address delivered by the late John Szarkowski to the graduating class of the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Gohlke’s fascination grew during a three-year stay in Middlebury, Vermont, where he first experienced apple cider fresh from a press. “Apples” by Frank Browning (North Point Press, 1998), introduced Gohlke to the wild apple forests of Kazakhstan, from which domesticated apples grown across the world are derived.

Gohlke’s lecture will include photographs of earlier projects that presage aspects of the Kazakhstan work, and a group of images made since December 2013 in the first stage of the current project.”

February 8th, NYC: “A World of Its Own: Photographic Practices in the Studio” Opens at MoMA

MoMA
A World of Its Own: Photographic Practices in the Studio

February 8 – October 5, 2014

“Bringing together photographs, films, videos, and works in other mediums, A World of Its Own: Photographic Practices in the Studio examines the ways in which photographers and artists using photography have worked and experimented within the four walls of the studio space, from photography’s inception to today. Featuring both new acquisitions and works from the Museum’s collection that have not been on view in recent years, A World of Its Own includes approximately 180 works, by approximately 90 artists such as Berenice Abbott, Uta Barth, Zeke Berman, Karl Blossfeldt, Constantin Brancusi, Geta Brătescu, Harry Callahan, Robert Frank, Jan Groover, Barbara Kasten, Man Ray, Bruce Nauman, Paul Outerbridge, Irving Penn, Adrian Piper, Edward Steichen, William Wegman, and Edward Weston.

The exhibition considers the various roles played by the photographer’s studio as an autonomous space; depending on the time period, context, and the individual motivations (commercial, artistic, scientific) and sensibilities of the photographer, the studio may be a stage, a laboratory, or a playground.” more»

“A self-described champion of photography, W.M. “Bill” Hunt will engage the INFOCUS audience with his list of the 10 most exciting photographers he learned about this year. Hunt is passionate and unpredictable. He likes to emphasize the “de-light” in photography. For 40 years, Hunt has been a collector, dealer (Hasted Hunt, Ricco/Maresca), curator, writer, teacher (SVA, Aperture and ICP), and story-teller. His book The Unseen Eye: Photographs from the Unconscious was published in 2011 by Aperture in the US, Thames & Hudson in the UK, and as L’Oeil Invisible by Actes Sud in France and selected by most of the Top Ten lists. He is working on a number of new projects while he continues to write and lecture, review portfolios, judge competitions, and serve on the boards of the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund and The Center for Photography at Woodstock. And, he is a pretty funny guy (self-described).”
