Elizabeth Hahn, a graduate fellow at the University of Virginia Art Museum and second-year graduate student in the McIntire Department of Art, will give a Gallery Talk, "Moving at the Speed of Life: City Photographs," on Tuesday, Nov. 30 at 12:30 p.m. in the museum. Hahn’s talk is in conjunction with the exhibit, “Lifeline: Movement and Time in Prints, Drawings and Photographs from the Collection.”
The exhibit, which runs through Dec. 23, explores the idea of cinematic motion and time with an exhibition of works in various mediums that deal with velocity, dynamism and change in 20th century art. Hahn’s talk will focus on images of the street photography in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles which are included in the exhibit and reflect the jittery life of the big city in fleeting time captured in a still image.
The U.Va. Art Museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.
