The Portrait in Contemporary Photography
Tuesday, October 2, 6:30 pm

$10, $7 members, FREE for students with a valid ID.

Carol Armstrong (Yale University) examines the place of portraiture in contemporary photography on a global stage. Looking at changing concepts of personhood against the historical background of portraiture in painting and other traditional mediums, this lecture tracks the shift to photographic portraiture in the 19th century, and the further shift in photography, in the 1970s and 1980s, toward large-scale imagery and references to art history.

On the occasion of Rineke Dijkstra: A Retrospective, the Guggenheim presents a short program of film and video works carefully assembled by the artist. The program includes Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore, Mark Leckey's acclaimed short film portraying British nightlife from fragments of found video footage; Pierre Huyghe's Blanche-Neige Lucie, his short film capturing the struggle of Lucie Dolene, who sued Disney to regain possession of the copyright to her own voice in the French dubbed version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs; as well as Blind Kind, Johan van der Keuken's poetic short documentary about a school for blind children in Amsterdam, which captures firsthand the children's insight into their perception of the world around them.
