In Conversation: Taryn Simon and Lisa Hostetler

Free and open to the public.

“Aperture Foundation and the photography program at the School of Art, Media, and Technology at Parsons The New School for Design are pleased to present a conversation between artist Taryn Simon and Lisa Hostetler, McEvoy Family Curator of Photography at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Writing on Simon’s work, Hostetler has observed: “By highlighting the precarious and often unreliable seams between photographic imagery, textual material, and definitive knowledge, Simon’s art draws attention to habits of inference and judgment . . . . While her seductively beautiful photographs attract the eye, the accompanying texts disclose unexpected—sometimes shocking—details about the subject of the picture. Given a contemporary world rife with images and information, her work speaks to issues that affect us all.’”

Artist Talk by Barbara Kasten

Tuesday, October 9, 2012 at 6:30 pm
Free and open to the public.

“Join Aperture and Parsons the New School for Design for a lecture by photographer Barbara Kasten. Influenced by the Bauhaus and Constructivism, Kasten explores modes of reorganizing the visual environment. With geometric shapes, mirrors, glass, lighting gels, and a lighting crew recruited from the film industry, she creates abstract interpretations of interior spaces and architectural details. More recently, Kasten has transformed the human form in a series of hazy nudes.”
