Any of our readers local to the Bay Area should seriously consider visiting California College of The Arts this Thursday, April 21st at 7pm for a lecture by Marco Breuer, the inaugural Larry Sultan Photography Award recipient. His work has been shown widely across the United States and Europe, most recently at the De Young Museum and Minneapolis Institute Of Arts.
Breuer’s work eschews the use of traditional photographs, instead using photogrammic methods along with careful abrasion, folding, incising, drawing with light and heat, and other destructive methods of photo-sensitive media. His tool box has included sand paper, electronics, turntables, and famously a 12-gauge shotgun. The resulting work is a series of unique abstractions and explorations of the photographic method that pushes the materials’ physical limits into uncharted territory.
Seating is free and open to the public with no RSVP required. Just show up at Timken Lecture Hall at 1111 Eighth Street in San Francisco at 7pm on Thursday, April 21st for an amazing lecture by one of the most talented photographic artists currently working.
