Pointing: Phil Chang’s Four over One and Tacita Dean’s Floh
February 21 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us for an illustrated lecture by Charles Palermo, professor of art history at William & Mary. Contemporary art theory takes very seriously the idea that an artist can make anything art by choosing it. Photographic theory takes similarly seriously the idea that a photographer makes the world into a picture by pointing a camera at it. This lecture aims to complicate these ideas by discussing work by two contemporary photographers, Tacita Dean and Phil Chang.
This lecture will take place in Tucker Hall Auditorium (127A). Reserved parking for attendees will be available on James Blair Drive. Street parking is also available on Richmond Road.
