ARTTALK LECTURE SERIES
ALBERTA COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN AT 7 PM
M.N. Hutchinson will talk about the history of panorama images and his own use of the form. He will track some connections between the popularity of19th Century panoramic entertainments, the invention of photography and their significance to representation. From counter-intuitive rationalism to amateur science the significance of populist visual entertainment has marked out a history of perception that illuminates our embodiment of technological advancements. With any luck at all this scrutiny will help to make explicit some relationships between the trajectories of contemporary art and current technologies.
M.N. HUTCHINSON is co-presented by ArtTalk and Stride Gallery. In conjunction with the talk, Stride is pleased to present a new publication entitled Science Boy and the Golden Age by M.N. Hutchinson, Paul Robert and Lissa Robinson. Science Boy and the Golden Age will be available on the evening of the talk and at Stride Gallery for $10.
