Contemporary American Photographers with Christian Conrad

Cindy Sherman

Cindy Sherman

Continuing our look at American photographers, we turn our focus to the contemporary era. While previous generations captured the early growth of America, postmodern artists used photography to capture what it meant to be a part of this country, focusing their lenses on the people of this nation. Diane Arbus turned her camera on her native New Yorkers with her mission being to capture the most unique of its residents. Conversely, other artists like Cindy Sherman use photography as an artistic device to create new worlds and to also comment on the past. Join us as we explore photographers of the contemporary, some of whom are still creating new photography today.

Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation.

This event is free to the public.

Join us for coffee and donuts!
