About The Event

Lois Conner began her photographic explorations of China with a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1984. Since then, she has returned annually, traveling extensively and using her 7 x 17 banquet camera to describe the landscape, architecture, and people. Some think they are evocative of Chinese scroll paintings because of their elongated cinematic-like format. This exhibition focuses on her work in Beijing, describing its transformation over the past thirty years. Join the artist for a look at her career and work on the opening day of Beijing: Contemporary and Imperial: Photographs by Lois Conner, on view in the Photography Gallery from March 30 to June 29, 2014.

A book signing will follow the lecture. Books will be available for purchase in the museum store and outside the Recital Hall before and after the talk.

Tickets $15. Admission is free for museum members and students with ID.

This lecture is made possible with support from Herbert Ascherman.
