Anderman Photography Lecture Series: Alec Soth

CPAC members are eligible for the member price.

 

Photographer Alec Soth studies the habits and rituals of ordinary Americans, finding moments of self-absorption and vulnerability that are specific to the people he photographs, yet somehow common to human experience.

 

The exhibition Alec Soth: Colorado Dispatch opens June 7 at the Denver Art Museum. Taking cues from the Depression-era documentary projects of the 1930s, the exhibition presents the core of Soth’s work from a Colorado road trip in which he set out to create a record of American life in the early twenty-first century.

 

Making Modern Flowers: The Path to the Avant-Garde

This talk explores how artists used flowers as a subject to inflect their works with modern meanings. The flower was a valid medium for this as it was a often a metaphor not only for color, that basic tool of the artist, but also of artistic creation, as analogized to nature’s fecundity. Artists discussed will include Delacroix, Manet, van Gogh, and Matisse.

 

Why Flowers? Impressionist Artists and the Modern Floral Still-Life

Why did French artists of the 19th century paint flowers? Was it a way for them to respond directly to nature, a connection to artistic tradition, or simply the ideal modernist subject matter, void of narrative? In this lecture, Dr. Heather MacDonald, co-curator of the exhibition “In Bloom: Painting Flowers in the Age of Impressionism,” will discuss the history of flower painting in France and how it became such a vital and innovative practice in the hands of the impressionists and their contemporaries.
