Artist Talk with Kalev Erickson
Saturday July 21   7-8 pm

Based in London, the Archive of Modern Conflict is one of the most curious, decidedly mysterious, and unique collections in the world. This Saturday evening AMC's commissioning editor, Kalev Erickson will introduce the treasure trove of photographs (not necessarily related to war - despite what the name suggests), AMC's publishing program and what led to the creation of his book,
More Cooning for Cooners.

$20 non-members, $12 members & those age 30 or under. Reception with cash bar and snacks to follow.



Somewhere to Disappear
Film Screening

Sunday June 29  4-5pm
Carnegie Museum of Art Theater


Why do people dream of escaping modern society? Who makes this deliberate decision to disappear? What are they looking for, and do they find it? These are some of the questions that photographer Alec Soth set out to investigate in his project, Broken Manual. His experience unfolds in the 57-minute documentary, Somewhere to Disappear, as filmmakers Laure Flammarion and Arnaud Uyttenhove follow Soth on his two-year journey to encounter individuals who have left the beaten path of American life. Viewers experience the photographer's quest through his eyes as he creates a guide on how to disappear from modern life.

$20 non-members, $12 members & those age 30 or under. Reception with cash bar and snacks to follow.



Building A Photobook
Sunday July 27  12-5pm
Carnegie Museum of Art Coatroom Gallery


Art begins the moment the creaking of a boot on the soundtrack occurs against a different visual shot and thus gives rise to corresponding associations.
-Sergei Eisenstein

One purpose of a photobook is to tell a story of some kind through the arrangement of a collection of images. The edit and sequence of a photobook lies at the heart of the narrative's meaning and can be seen not only as an important building block of making a photobook, but as the invisible art of creating a successful and engaging story. How we interpret the meaning of a single photograph can greatly change based on where it is placed within a sequence and what relationships can be read between each image. In this hands-on workshop, we'll experiment with different ways of organizing photographs, teasing out many possible readings and associations and uncovering the mysteries and pleasures of building a visual narrative.

Each participant will be required to submit a minimum of 25 image files in advance of the workshop. Participants must also bring to the workshop one book that has inspired or influenced their practice.
