EXPLORING CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHY: A FOUR WEEK SEMINAR
March 16 - April 13, 2017
$175.00 for 4 weeks (or $50 a la carte pricing)
This four-week seminar focuses on the movements and figures who have shaped the medium of photography since 1970. Starting in the 1960s photography saw a surge in popularity that began driving a marketplace for photographic prints and a wildly diversified approach to how the medium was used by artists. This seminar looks at contemporary photography roughly one decade per week, considering all aspects of the field of fine art photography in the present era.
Designed for photographers, photography collectors, and those who want to deepen their awareness of the medium today, this four-week course will look at the whole of fine art photography from editions and pricing of artwork, to mounting and conservation concerns, as well as the marketplace for photography as a fine art. We will hone in on the careers of individual artists whose photographs have shaped the present course of photography, offering participants a broad base of knowledge and a renewed perspective on the value of fine art photography in the art world today.
The seminar meets on four Thursday nights from 7-9pm at Grossmont College. There will be no meeting on March 30. Individual class registration is available for this seminar.
