Panel Discussion: Heinecken and Feminism

Tuesday, December 9, 2014 at 7:30 pm
Tickets: Free, available on first-come first-served basis 1 hour before event.

“Heralded as a feminist and denounced as misogynist, Robert Heinecken is a complex figure whose art raises urgent questions about the representation of women in a media saturated world. His use of found pornographic materials and images of female bodies taken from magazines, newspapers, and other found sources was, and still is, hotly debated among artists, scholars, and curators. This panel, held in conjunction with the exhibition Robert Heinecken: Object Matter, will explore the various ways in which Heinecken’s work has been read, and continues to be relevant, in the dialogue about representations of women and gender in art.

Eva Respini, curator, Department of Photography, MoMA, moderates the panel discussion with A. L. Steiner, artist and visiting assistant professor and MFA program director at USC; Luke Batten, director, Robert Heinecken Trust; Richard Meyer, Robert and Ruth Halperin Professor in Art History, Stanford University; and Rebecca Morse, associate curator, Wallis Annenberg Photography Department, Los Angeles County Museum of Art.”

This event is being presented in conjunction with the exhibition Robert Heinecken: Object Matter, on view until January 18, 2015.

Iris Nights Lecture Series: To Be Published or Self-Publish? Options for Artists Today

Ticket registration opens Wednesday, May 7 at 12:00 pm PDT and Thursday, May 8 at 9:30 am PDT HERE.

“The Iris Nights lecture series is a public program offered free of charge, by online reservation, on a first-come, first-served basis.”

The publishing industry is undergoing extraordinary changes. The print-on-demand revolution has opened up new possibilities, and it has never been easier or more affordable to produce a book of your photographs. The traditional publishing path has the advantage of a highly specialized team who brings their expertise in design, production, marketing and distribution systems. With self-publishing, you can create exactly the book you envision, but without the support of professionals at a publishing house. In the changing landscape of the photo book industry which publishing scenario is right for you at this time in your career?

In this presentation, Mary Virginia Swanson will discuss both avenues to publishing, and help participants determine the pros/cons for their unique needs. Swanson will share resources from Publish Your Photography Book, a respected title she coauthored with Darius Himes, which has recently been updated and expanded (Princeton Architectural Press, Spring 2014).

August 13th, Los Angeles: “Copyright: Know It Or Blow It” with Debra Weiss & James Silverburg

ASMP-LA
Copyright: Know It Or Blow It
Tuesday, August 13, 2013, 7:00-9:30 pm
Registration: Affiliate $15 | ASMP member $10 | non-member $20 | Student $5

“Creative Consultant Debra Weiss and Intellectual Property Attorney James Silverberg will take you through an informative and entertaining evening that will inspire and empower by discussing key topics that include:

  • Why copyright registration matters.
  • Putting copyright to work for you – We pay cash for gold!
  • What to do when your image has been infringed.
  • Fair Use – When is it really fair?
  • Social Media – Risk vs reward.

Understanding how to put copyright to work for you is crucial to your success as a photographer. Predatory image rights demands and widespread image theft can leave a photographer’s business in jeopardy. Knowing the facts about copyright protection and how to effectively exercise and monetize your rights is paramount. Lack of information, misinformation or carelessness can leave a photographer defenseless and unable to take action against infringers. Don’t let this happen to you.
