What does it mean to reconstruct moments of historical rupture through a modern lens? Join award-winning photographer Stan Douglas as he explores the boundaries of artistic expression in photographic depictions of the past. This presentation will examine artistic reconstructions of significant social moments that give a window to not only the past, but our perceptions of it. Come experience Douglas’ works of historical reconstruction and how they abandon 19th century photographic realism to make way for new perspectives of true historical events. This event will be followed by a reception at the Frederic Wood Theatre, co-hosted by the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery, from 17:30-19:00.
Stan Douglas is a visual artist who works in photography, video and theatre. Survey exhibitions of his work have been staged at major museums in North America and Europe and he is currently core faculty in the Graduate Fine Art Department of Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.
