“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.

Sustaining a robust photograph practice today requires not just the obvious level of creativity, but a good hint of marketing, branding and social media management, a constant attention to new storytelling tools as well as a working knowledge of the gallery culture, dealer-artist relationships, copyright and contract law. What is the new landscape of photography? How do you sustain a vibrant practice? How can platforms such as Instagram or Facebook enhance a creative practice and its visibility? And in this ever-changing landscape, how have the relationships of the traditional players of the art world evolved?
To tackle these topics the Parsons Institute for Intellectual property (PiiP), brings together a panel of experienced professionals with diverse backgrounds in art and photography, the gallery world, modern law, social media and marketing who will discuss the things you need to know about how to navigate the various intersections of art, business and law.”

“The Veterans Book Project evolved out of a book that Monica Haller authored with Riley Sharbonno, a veteran and nurse at Abu Ghraib prison. Since 2006, the project has facilitated thirteen bookmaking workshops around the country, including at the Museum in December 2012. In these workshops, combat and non-combat veterans, their families, and others affected by the current American wars are invited to edit and design their archives and stories into softbound, print-on-demand books. Five books were created by local authors in the workshop at the Museum—a soldier’s mother, a Vietnam War veteran, two veterans of the Iraq war, and a local scholar whose research brings her into close contact with veterans.
The fifty books in the exhibition serve to redeploy the volatile images of war for a broad audience, while helping the authors rearticulate their memories and fashion narratives so as to make the experiences more manageable. Each book not only stands on its own but also works in concert with the larger collection, which Haller sees as an archive, a container of memory traces and image fragments from wars that are not talked about nearly enough.
The exhibition and the Panel Discussion on April 4 offer viewers the opportunity to engage with veterans’ experiences through reading, writing responses, informal conversation, and facilitated discussion.
The Veterans Book Project continues the Museum’s joint mission with the War Memorial Corporation “to honor the dead by serving the living.”
The exhibition will be on view April 4 – September 2, 2013.

About the Exhibition
“On Veterans Day 2012, the MFAH debuts an unprecedented exhibition exploring the experience of war through the eyes of photographers. WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath gathers together nearly 500 objects, including photographs, books, magazines, albums, and photographic equipment.
Images recorded by more than 280 photographers, from 28 nations, span 6 continents and more than 165 years, from the Mexican-American War in the mid-1800s to present-day conflicts.
The exhibition examines the relationship between war and photography, exploring the types of photographs created during wartime, as well as by whom and for whom. Rather than being organized chronologically, or as a survey of “greatest hits,” the images are arranged to show the progression of war: from the acts that instigate armed conflict to “the fight,” to victory and defeat, and photos that memorialize a war, its combatants, and its victims. Portraits of servicemen, military and political leaders, and civilians are a consistent presence.”
The exhibition will be up November 11, 2012 to February 3, 2013.
