August 4th in Phoenix: Lecture, “Cezanne and Modern Photography”

From the printed announcement from the Phoenix Art Museum:

“Cezanne’s influence on painting is obvious, but what about his effect on photography?  From Edward Steichen’s still lifes of fruit to Alfred Stieglitz’s portraits of bathers, Norton Family Curator of Photography Rebecca Senf, Ph.D., discusses how early American photography reflects Cezanne’s infamous subject matter, composition and style.”

This lecture is in conjunction with the two current exhibitions:

Cezanne and American Modernism,” on view through September 26th.

and

Creative Continuum: The History of the Center for Creative Photography” on view through November 28, 2010

From the webpage for the exhibition:

The year was 1975. Gerald R. Ford was president, a little company named Microsoft was founded, A Chorus Line opened on Broadway and Jaws was making a big splash in movie theaters. And in Tucson, a lifelong dream was realized.

Founded by legendary photographer Ansel Adams and then University of Arizona President John P. Schaefer, The Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona was the vision of two men who wanted to create an institution dedicated to collecting, preserving, interpreting and managing all materials that are essential to understanding photography and its history. Today, 35 years later, the Center has acquired more archives and individual works by 20th century North American photographers than any other museum in the nation.

Creative Continuum charts the Center’s dynamic evolution, beginning with the inaugural exhibition of works by Ansel Adams, Wynn Bullock, Harry Callahan, Aaron Siskind and Frederick Sommer through today’s contemporary artists that are reinventing the medium. This special look at the Center’s history is an exciting and engaging “who’s who” of American photography and features works by Richard Avedon, Lola Alvarez Bravo, Louis Carlos Bernal, Tseng Kwong Chi, Imogen Cunningham, Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Roy DeCarava, Andy Warhol and Edward Weston.

In addition to nearly ninety photographs, Creative Continuum also includes a sampling from the Center’s Voices of Photography video oral history project, rare archival objects from the vault and examples of past exhibition catalogues.”
