Anagnorisis Picks | Dan Estabrook Lecture
I just received an email from Dan Estabrook regarding an upcoming opportunity to hear him lecture about his artwork in New York City. Estabrook is an esteemed photographer who specializes in old photographic techniques. His work is currently up in Anagnorisis’ Another Roadside Attraction exhibit and he showed with us last year in Philly.
This lecture is taking place at 7pm on Tuesday December 7th at The Center for Alternative Photography, in partnership with the International Center of Photography. The CAP is located at 36 East 30 Street NY, NY 10016. Admission to the lecture is free.
Details from the CAP website:
Dan Estabrook will speak about his long exploration of historical processes, as an artist not seeking to revisit the past but to look at it from a 21st-Century perspective. The history he evokes in his work is a false one, meant to illuminate our present fears, fantasies and desires.
For almost twenty years, Dan Estabrook has been making contemporary art using a variety of 19th-century photographic techniques. Lately he has focused on the earliest processes on paper – calotype negatives and salted paper prints – as sources for hand manipulation with paint and pencil. He balances his interests in photography and design with forays into sculpture, painting, drawing and other works.
Dan has exhibited widely and has received several awards, including an Artist’s Fellowship from the National Endowment of the Arts in 1994. He is also the subject of a recent documentary by Anthropy Arts. He is represented by the Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago, Daniel Cooney Fine Art in New York and Jackson Fine Art in Atlanta.
