June 20, 2019 | 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Photo-conceptual art in Canada with Dr. Sarah Bassnett
7:00 PM | FREE | Donations appreciated | Registration Required | Seats limited
This talk will discuss select artworks from the exhibition, Photography in Canada 1960-2000, in relation to key themes in photo-conceptual art. Of particular interest is how artists have explored the nature of representation and how they have engaged with social and political issues.
Sarah Bassnett is an associate professor of art history at Western University. Her research focuses on the intersections of photography and social change. Her award-winning book, Picturing Toronto: Photography and the Making of a Modern City (McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2016), examines photography’s role in the liberal reform of early twentieth- century Toronto.
