Writer and curator Charlotte Cotton's lecture is her first attempt to articulate how her experience of working with CCA undergraduate and graduate students is shaping her ideas about photographic culture.
The lecture will principally focus on the scope of her forthcoming books and exhibition: Photography is Magic!, Photographic and Photographicness.
Currently a CCA visiting scholar, Cotton is the author of The Photograph as Contemporary Art and founder of Words Without Pictures and Eitherand.org.
She is the former curator of photographs at the Victoria and Albert Museum and head of programming at The Photographers' Gallery in London. She also headed the Wallis Annenberg Department of Photographs at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
This lecture is copresented by California College of the Arts, Pier 24 Photography, and SFMOMA. Support for the Larry Sultan Visiting Artist Program is provided by Robert Mailer Anderson, Randi and Bob Fisher, Nion McEvoy, the Black Dog Private Foundation, and Pier 24 Photography.
