Uta Barth Lecture October 21st

We are very excited to present Uta Barth as part of our Artist Lecture Series.
October 21, 7:30pm*

*German-born, American-based artist Utha Barth is among the key recent figures who have brought photography to the prominent position once occupied by painting. Her photographs of interior and exterior, urban and natural environments capture fleeting moments as if glimpsed out of the corner of one's eye, where we become aware of the beauty of everyday light, space, texture and luminous surfaces. Barth's work has been exhibited at museums around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Tate Modern, London; and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York. She was a recipient of the John Simon Guggenheim fellowship in 2004-05.*
*All programs will take place in Danforth Lecture Hall, Art Building unless noted.*
