By Maggie Cardelus

Many people are afraid of photographs. They don't quite know how to critically approach a photographic image, especially when it is in a contemporary art context. This one-hour interactive lecture aims to help you, as viewer, feel comfortable and confident reading a photographic image or photo-based contemporary artwork. Through lively participation and discussion, you will be asked to deconstruct the viewing process and use it to analyze a selection of photographic artworks, thinking about the art photograph in all its material, iconic, and process-intense complexity.


Maggie Cardelus is an internationally exhibited multi-media artist whose photo-based works challenge our conventional understanding of photography and stretch its boundaries into drawing, sculpture, installation, and video. Her work is internationally exhibited and collected. At the Accademia di Belle Arti di Santagiulia in Italy, she taught undergraduate and graduate courses in studio art and in the theory of photography. She earned her undergraduate degree in studio art and art history from Wellesely College, and her graduate degrees in architecture and fine arts from Columbia University and Hunter College in New York City.
