Artist Talk: Larry Fink
Saturday, February 23, 2013
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
$5 DONATION, FREE WITH STUDENT I.D.
Larry Fink’s photographs merge style, vision, and content so seamlessly that their meaning strikes us as given: something known and shared—an unequivocal truth about what things looked and felt like there in front of the camera. The art of this lies in Fink’s ability and willingness to penetrate the scene at hand, even when the politics may not be to his liking. Join Larry Fink for an artist talk that will explore the relationship between subject and photographer, style and meaning, followed by a reception with the artist.
Fink has been a professor at Yale University School of Art, New Haven; Cooper Union School of Art and Architecture, New York; Parsons School of Design, New York; and Tyler School of Art, Temple University, Philadelphia. Currently he is a tenured professor of photography at Bard College. His work has been widely exhibited in the United States, including solo exhibitions at Light Gallery, New York; Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge; Museum of Modern Art, New York; and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
This event is free for workshop participants, students with I.D., and Aperture supporters at the $250 level and above.
