Event description

Description

This lecture is being offered in conjunction with the Bruce Museum's exhibition, Spring into Summer with Andy Warhol and Friends!, which will be on view from June 10-September 3, 2017.

About the lecture:

It’s well known the changes wrought by Andy Warhol’s work on painting and art. Less discussed is the impact on photography. Warhol played a crucial role in changing the climate for image making and helped usher in a photographic era of bad pictures of bad subjects. (It’s no coincidence that both Stephen Shore and William Eggleston, both pilloried for being pedestrian photographers, spent time at Warhol’s “factory.”) This lecture explores Warhol’s influence, direct and indirect, on photography since the 1970s.

About the speaker:

Lyle Rexer is the author of several books, including The Edge of Vision: The Rise of Abstraction in Photography (2009) and Photography’s Antiquarian Avant Garde: the New Wave in Old Processes (2002). In addition, he has published many catalogue essays and articles on art, architecture, and photography and contributed to such publications as The New York Times, Art in America, Aperture, BOMB, Parkett and DAMn. As a curator, he has organized exhibitions in the United States and internationally, most recently “The Edge of Vision,” a selection of contemporary abstract photography. He teaches at the School of Visual Arts in New York and is a columnist for Photograph magazine.
