Inspired by the exhibition In Body and Soul: The Figure in Modernist Photography join us for a virtual lecture with Dr. Bradford R. Collins focused on the legacy of trailblazing photographer Alfred Stieglitz. Dr. Collins will provide an overview of the photographic art of Alfred Stieglitz in the context of his colleagues and a discussion of the critical roles he played in the fight to recognize photography as art; the introduction of “modern” European art in the US; and the career of his wife, Georgia O’Keeffe.
This event is a part of a three part lecture series where scholars from across the country will put contributions of the lensmen and lenswomen who defined photography in the 20th century into bold, new contexts.
This event will take place on Zoom. Registrants will receive the link to the Zoom webinar one day prior to the event.
