February 28th, 7:00 PM.
As part of the Month of Photography lecture program at the Denver Art Museum, artist David Maisel will give a public lecture discussing his work. Doors open at 6:30 PM.
“While Maisel’s work is rooted in photography’s tradition of recording, the monumental scale and presentation of his prints also draw upon the language of abstract painting. Despite this visual correspondence, the work acts equally as a subversion of modernism as the inherent beauty of the often-horrific situations raises questions regarding the power of the sublime.”
