Person, Place, Thing: Photographic Practices in the Studio
Thursday, August 14, 2014, 11:30 a.m.
The Edward Steichen Photography Galleries, third floor
Uncover the variety of ways photographers can capture images within the confines of a studio space. Play with and parse the categories of people, places, and things as you consider portraiture vs. figure studies, the depiction of specific studio interiors vs. studios shown as non-spaces, and the documentation of objects in still-life arrangements vs. the complete absence of recognizable things.
In conjunction with the exhibition A World of Its Own: Photographic Practices in the Studio
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.
Sign language–interpreted Gallery Sessions are held every fourth Sunday of the month at 1:30 p.m. FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
