Talks | Focus 45: Behind the Scenes of an Exhibition
Chief Object Preparator Emily Phoenix and Manager of Exhibitions and Programs Nick Marshall will share stories of the more challenging and unusual exhibitions the museum has prepared and installed in recent years.
Through his writings, curatorial practice, teaching, photographs, and photobooks, Nathan Lyons (1930-2016) had a tremendous impact on the history and practice of photography for more than sixty years. His work as a writer and curator has been widely celebrated, but his own art is less well known, despite its formal acuity and conceptual rigor. Nathan Lyons: In Pursuit of Magic demonstrates that he practiced what he preached—not only in the black-and-white images he sequenced and reproduced in his photobooks, but also in his final body of work.
