To mark the opening of the exhibition Analog Culture: Printer’s Proofs from the Schneider/Erdman Photography Lab, 1981–2001 (May 19–August 12, 2018), the Harvard Art Museums will present a conversation between artist John Schabel and printer and artist Gary Schneider.
Jennifer Quick, the John R. and Barbara Robinson Family Associate Research Curator in Photography in the Division of Modern and Contemporary Art, and artist and printer Gary Schneider will give this gallery talk.
Theodore E. Stebbins Jr., curator of American art, emeritus, at the Harvard Art Museums, and former curator at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Yale University Art Gallery, will offer his views on some of the seismic changes he has observed in the art world since 1961. He will describe such positive developments as the growing popularity of art and art museums and the ever-increasing quality of exhibitions, and less positive ones, including the decline of connoisseurship. Stebbins will discuss the work of Andrew Wyeth and Jeff Koons, among others.
