Beyond the Frame: A collector’s exercise to discover the Artists behind the Images in the Art of Photography Show 2009
Tuesday October 27, 7:00 pm
Lyceuym Theater Gallery, Downtown San Diego in Horton Plaza
From the announcement:
Curator Tim B. Wride will take a rollicking, no-holds-barred look at the photographers and the ideas behind his favorite images in the Art of Photography Show 2009. Be forewarned, he is not one to mince words. You will get his honest, though always constructive, opinions about the images and the art: good, bad and ugly.
Tim will share his process of researching artists and decision-making insights about what makes art worth investing in. This will be a valuable exercise for both collectors and artists.
Tim B. Wride is the founding Executive Director of the No Strings Foundation, a Los Angeles-based non-profit philanthropic organization that provides individual artist grants to U.S. photographers. Prior to his position with the Foundation, Mr. Wride spent 14 years at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) as a Curator in the Department of Photographs. During his tenure at LACMA, Mr. Wride curated over twenty-five permanent collection focus exhibitions as well as numerous larger exhibitions. As an independent curator, he is actively researching and mounting exhibitions with major museums internationally. He is also the founder of The Curatorial Eye, offering lectures, seminars, workshops, and mentoring to photographers, collectors, and not-for-profit institutions.
