Kaja Silverman: The Three-Personed Picture
Kaja Silverman—one of today’s most exciting critical thinkers in the field of photography, whose work informed the curatorial premise of «The Blue Hour,» the 2018 Feature Exhibition—gives a lecture based on her forthcoming book. The second in a three-volume reconceptualization of photography, «The Three-Personed Picture, or the History of Photography, Part 2» (Stanford University Press, 2018) traces the gradual emergence of an image very different from those made during the first three decades of chemical photography: one that is pictorial in nature.
Silverman is the Keith L. and Katherine Sachs Professor of Contemporary Art at the University of Pennsylvania and the author of nine books, including «The Miracle of Analogy, or The History of Photography, Part 1» (2015), «Flesh of My Flesh» (2009), and «The Threshold of the Visible World» (1996).
Produced by the Contemporary Art Gallery and The Polygon Gallery in partnership with Capture. Part of programming for «The Blue Hour» at the Contemporary Art Gallery.
Free with admission. (No ticket required. Check-in at the lobby upon arrival.) Followed by a reception and book signing.
Please note: this Capture Speaker Series event is at The Polygon Gallery. Admission is by donation.
