LOCATION: FOURTH-FLOOR GALLERY
SEPTEMBER 29 AT 6 PM
Modern Mondays programs provide an opportunity to interact with museum professionals, scholars and others who present a deeper understanding of works in the collection and on exhibition at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art. On September 29, the Bechtler presents the gallery talk David Hockney: Photographic Cubist.
Larry L. Ligo will discuss Hockney's use of photography in some of his work and examine one of the artist’s photo collages on display in the British Invasion exhibition (on view through February 18, 2015). Throughout his career, Hockney had a love-hate relationship with the camera. In 1982, he suddenly turned to the exclusive use of photography in his work, and by 1986 he had produced nearly 400 photo collages some of which included hundreds of individual photographs he had taken.
Ligo is a Professor of Art History at Davidson College, where he teaches courses based on his interest and expertise in gothic cathedrals, 19th century European painting, the history of photography, modern painting and sculpture, modern architecture and the history and theory of garden design. He received a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy and Psychology from Muskingum College and holds a Ph.D. in Art History from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Modern Mondays programs offer a cash-bar reception at 6 p.m. followed by the program at 6:30 p.m.
Tickets are $4 for museum members and $8 for non-members.
