Metropolitan Museum Of Art Curator To Give Talk On Photographer Walker Evans At U.Va.

February 6, 2003--

WHO: Jeffrey Rosenheim, associate curator of photography, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

WHAT: “Walker Evans: Photography in the South”

WHEN: Monday, Feb. 24, 6 p.m.

WHERE: Campbell Hall, Room 153, 6 p.m.

Walker Evans revolutionized photography with his objective, documentary style. Perhaps best known as one of the photographers hired by the Farm Security Administration to photograph the life of tenant farmers in the post-Depression South of the 1930s, Evans captures the humanity and dignity as well as the stark reality of their condition.

Jeffrey Rosenheim, associate curator of photography at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, will talk about Evan’s photographs of the South. The museum, home of the Walker Evans Archive, held a major retrospective in 2000 of the artist’s work, which spanned more than half the 20th century.

The talk is co-sponsored by the McIntire Department of Art, the University of Virginia Art Museum, the Special Lectures Committee and the Art Students Society.
