Performance by W. M. Hunt, The Unseen Eye: A Life in Photographs and Other Digressions…
Thursday, July 26, 2012 at 6:00 pm
Free and open to the public. Book signing to follow.

W. M. Hunt will recreate his unique performance piece suggested by the text for his book, The Unseen Eye: Photographs from the Unconscious (Aperture 2011).  Hunt debuted his performance The Unseen Eye: A Life in Photographs and Other Digressions… last October when the book was launched.

The Unseen Eye: A Life in Photographs and Other Digressions… is a monologue with projections and video, a rumination on Hunt’s many years of collecting and a life in photographs.  The author hopes to bring into the light some of the names and stories left out of The Unseen Eye. The book presents a wonderfully idiosyncratic and compelling collection of photographs assembled around a particular theme: magical, heart stopping images of people in which the eyes are obscured, veiled, or otherwise hidden.

Based in New York City, W. M. Hunt has been a collector since his early years as an actor. He is a frequent lecturer on collecting, a well-known dealer, a fundraiser, writer and an adjunct professor at the School of Visual Arts in New York. Hunt is known for his wit, his eye and his often larger than life personality.”
