February 21st, NYC: Lecture by Max Kozloff

Lecture by Max Kozloff
Tuesday, February 21, 2012 at 6:30 pm
Free and open to the public.

“Photography may be considered the ideal medium for fishing out things, appearances and events that don’t make sense or otherwise defy reason. In this lecture art historian and critic Max Kozloff will discuss the havoc wreaked upon the notion of story in photography by writers sympathetic to the element of chance, maintaining that as an explanatory principle to explain what happens, chance explains nothing. This will be illustrated by various photographs featuring the smiles of women.”
