What Is a Photograph? Looking at Robert Heinecken
Tuesday, May 20, 2014, 1:30 p.m.
Special Exhibitions Gallery, second floor
Since the 1960s, the work of Robert Heinecken has been hugely influential in redrawing photography’s boundaries, creating intersections with montage, sculpture, Conceptual art, and more. Join us to examine a selection of Heinecken’s work, together with some of his own statements about his artistic goals, and consider their relationship to traditional photography.
The exhibition Robert Heinecken: Object Matter includes sexual content that some visitors may find disturbing. Those accompanying children may wish to exercise discretion.
In conjunction with the exhibition Robert Heinecken: Object Matter
Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.
