Thursday, May 24th, 7pm – An Evening with Joel-Peter Witkin – Will be held in the Blanton Museum of Art Auditorium on the UT campus.
Join us as for an intimate look at the mind and work of provocative photographer, Joel-Peter Witkin. Enjoy a slideshow, lecture and book signing!
Photographer pushes boundaries with his powerful and exploratory photographs of the human condition. He has long pursued his interest in spirituality and morality and how it impacts the physical world. Finding beauty in the grotesque, Witkin focuses on subjects cast aside by society — human spectacles and “any living myth…bearing the wounds of Christ.” Heavily influenced by art history and literature, Witkin’s expressive photographs question established notions of beauty and normality.
