From the Field to the Archive – Nicaragua to Kurdistan

Thursday, October 25, 2012 at 5:30
Free and open to the public

“Co-sponsored by the University of Arizona School of Art’s Visiting Artists, Scholars and Exhibitions (VASE) Program, Susan Meiselas will present two seminal projects: Nicaragua and Kurdistan. Her work in Nicaragua spans 25 years, from the popular insurrection to a film that rediscovers the people in her photographs to an installation that brought images back to the landscape where they were first made. The Kurdistan project evolved from documenting the evidence of genocide and exile of the Kurdish people, to gathering a visual history that portrayed their desire for a homeland. Both bodies of work will be shown as they were presented in magazines, books and exhibition form.”

Center for Creative Photography
Lecture by Harold Jones: Every Picture Tells a Story
Friday, January 20, 2012 at 5:30 pm
CCP Auditorium. Free and open to the public.

“Humans have been communicating through images for hundreds of thousands of years; more recently using photography. Harold Jones is presenting this lecture on the anniversary of the birth date of Hippolyte Bayard (January 20, 1801 – May 14, 1887), whom he celebrates as the first creative photographer.

The lecture will include Jones’s view of what photography is, where it came from, and where it might go. The presentation will be part history of photography, part cultural commentary; part personal history, and part audience participation.

In 1975 Jones became the founding Director of the Center for Creative Photography, and then went on to start the Photography Program at the University of Arizona where he taught for the next 30 years. Presently he is Professor Emeritus and volunteer coordinator of the Voices of Photography oral history project at the Center. Jones continues to be a constant student and practitioner of photography.”

Goldsmith gives us the insider’s view of the musicians at the center of punk, alternative, commercial pop and the exclusive world of the super stars of rock. Her portraits of music legends including The Police, Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, Patti Smith, Kiss, Keith Richards, and Bruce Springsteen, reflect her personal experiences and are notable for their intimacy and humor.” Goldsmith’s work is currently up at Etherton Gallery with Baron Wolman for the exhibition Rockin’ the Desert.
