2) Curatorial Talk: Photography and Contemporary Tactics @ Brooklyn Arts Council

When: Thursday, June 7 from 6 – 8pm
Where: BAC Gallery is located at 111 Front Street, Suite 218

Curator Meredith Wisner will discuss the contentious relationship between photography and painting, from early modernism to the present day. Wisner will outline the points of interaction between the two mediums as well as the critical arguments that resulted in their division. The current erosion of this line of reasoning will be considered in terms of some contemporary works. Participating artists include Rahul Alexander, Monique Ford, Jade Getz, and René Smith.

Meredith Wisner is currently working as an assistant archivist at Condé Nast Corporation, cataloging a recently acquired collection of fashion illustrations by the artist Carl Erickson. She received her Master’s degree in the History of Art and Design, Theory and Criticism at Pratt Institute. Her Master’s thesis, Michal Rovner and the Painterly Photograph, challenges the notion of the photograph as document, and seeks to expose the critical underpinnings of that idea.
