Pillsbury Auditorium

"Extinct Photography" with Lacey Hedtke

Listen as some of our cities' most interesting artists give us the back stories about their work in this series of on-stage narratives. In 2011, the MIA commissioned photographer Lacey Prpic Hedtke to document the museum's collection using archaic photographic techniques, such as tin types, collotypes, and stereograms. She commenced upon an intensive exploration of history, representation, and visual interpretation, resulting in a kind of photographic archaeology that unearthed new connections and fresh interpretations of familiar artworks. Hedtke will discuss this project, the history of photography, and how she decided to pair certain art works with particular archaic photographic techniques.
