A History of 20th Century Photography Lecture Series
You are invited to join photographer and art historian Jeffrey Martz for a tour through the history of 20th century photography. Using the best possible reproductions we will see the technologies, practitioners, and key works that made photography central to our story of the world. The series is intended for both the newcomer and the curious expert looking to contribute to the discussion. See you there!
Part 13: Photo-Graphics & Postmodern Photography
The artistic avante-garde of the 1950’s and 60’s bend photography into a multitude of new visual forms. Others embrace the medium to document performances and illustrate ideas at the frontiers of the conceptual. By the late 1970’s a new generation of media-saturated image makers turns to appropriation, distortion, and re-photography to expose how we see and challenge all of our shared cultural assumptions about the medium.
Join photographer and art historian Jeffrey Martz as he shares photographic revolutionaries like Harry Callahan, Jerry Uelsmann, Ed Ruscha, Martha Rosler and others in an open forum featuring accurate, high-definition reproductions. (1 Hour)
