Artist Pedro Reyes and editor José Luis Falconi discuss Ad Usum / To Be Used, a survey of Reyes’s projects. The publication is a collection of images, interviews, and critical essays intended as an apparatus for multiplying the possibilities when art becomes a resource for the common good.
In this talk, Makeda Best, the Richard L. Menschel Curator of Photography, will be in conversation with Gerd Hurm, Anke Reitz, and Shamoon Zamir, editors of the recently published text The Family of Man Revisited: Photography in a Global Age (I. B. Tauris, 2017). Together they will discuss this landmark 1955 exhibition and how it shaped the ways we look at photography today; explore new contexts for interpreting the exhibition’s messages; and share recent research on its reception.
This listening session will re-create neues Musikfest in Menschel Hall. The program will include early compositions from the Studio for Electronic Music at WDR in addition to a series of experimental pieces by French composer Pierre Schaeffer, Cinq études de bruits (Five Studies of Noises), which was referenced in the original broadcast.
