Endicott College is pleased to announce the first public North Shore presentation by Dr. Sarah Kennel, newly appointed Curator of Photography at the Peabody Essex Museum. She will present, The Material Turn, on Wednesday, October 7, 2015 at 4:00 PM in the Rose Performance Hall, Manninen Center for the Arts. This presentation is in conjunction with the exhibit, Carol Toth: Pioneering Artist, Photographer and Educator now on display through December 11.
A specialist in nineteenth-century photography, Kennel has lectured and published widely on various topics in modern art and the history of photography. Of her upcoming lecture Dr. Kennel says, “In this talk, I explore some recent trends in photographic practice that signal a renewed fascination with the materiality of photography and consider these in relation to the rise of digital technologies as well as to earlier moments in art practice, including the 1970s, when many artists, including Carl Toth, sought to expand the vocabulary of photography by combining it with sculpture or by mining new imaging technologies.”
If you have any questions regarding Kennel’s talk, The Material Turn, the exhibit Carl Toth: Pioneering Artist, Photographer and Educator, or want to schedule a group tour, please contact Kathleen Moore, Coordinator of Visual Arts at 978-232-2655 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The presentation will be followed by a reception at 5:00 PM, both of which are free to the public.
