Alvin Langdon Coburn, the Great War, and the "World's First Abstract Photographs"
Thursday, May 5, 5 p.m. (ET)
Friend Center 101 or Stream it online

In 1917 the American photographer Alvin Langdon Coburn staged a show of eighteen photographs and thirteen watercolors at the London Camera Club. By looking at the context of what his friend Ezra Pound dubbed "Vortographs," this lecture will probe why Coburn sought to free his medium from reality (as he wrote) at this critical historical moment. Presented by Anne McCauley, the David Hunter McAlpin Professor of the History of Photography and Modern Art at Princeton University. Cosponsored by the Department of Art and Archaeology. Join us in person at the Friend Center or stream it live.

Opening Celebration

This exhibition features the work of sixteen artists from across the globe who question the evolving role of photography and video in an age of digital communication. While separated by geography, ethnicity, and gender, these artists are united in their concern with the onslaught of information in the twenty-first century. Curated by Richard Reinhart and Phillip Prodger and organized by Curatorial Exhibitions. Join us at the opening to learn more about the art on view with Curatorial Associate Beth Gollnick.
