Richard Misrach Lecture & Exhibition: ON THE BEACH
The biggest book ever published by Aperture at 20 x 16 inches, On The Beach instantly sold out and became an immediate collectible. The larger-than-life images are now on view at the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C. through September 1, 2008.
Richard Misrach will give a free lecture about the work Sunday, June 8th at 2:00 p.m.
Listen to the interview with Studio 360′s producer Sarah Lilley.

One of today’s most prolific masters, American artist Richard Misrach is internationally renowned for his carefully considered, beautifully rendered epic works. Coinciding with his exhibition at the National Art Gallery and the release of the accompanying, lavishly produced Aperture monograph of the same title, Misrach will discuss work from Richard Misrach: On the Beach, which hones in on our delicate relationship to the sea. Dramatically scaled at 6 x 10 feet—and shot from above—the photographs balance minutiae of human gesture against the vastness of the sea and envelop the viewer with a strangely disorienting perspective.
