Lecture: The Punch of Punctum: Locating Meaning in Photography and the Problem with Objectivity
Julia Dolan, Portland Art Museum
Location: Seattle Art Museum, Nordstrom Lecture Hall
Thursday, December 10 at 6:30 PM
Tickets: $10, $5 PCNW Members, SAM Members, and Punctum exhibiting artists. Purchase Tickets.
Join Julia Dolan, Ph.D. for a discussion of meaning in photography. Using examples from PCNW’sPunctum and SAM’s upcoming New Topographics exhibition, Dr. Dolan will explore Roland Barthes’ concept of the punctum—or poignant detail—of a photograph, and question the possibility of locating punctum in the seemingly objective photographs made by New Topographics artists. The Artist and Awards Reception for Punctum will follow at PCNW.
