Opening Conversation | “Bill Brandt | Henry Moore”: Sculpture, Photography, and the Printed Page

Free admission

Martina Droth, Deputy Director and Chief Curator, Yale Center for British Art, and Paul Messier, Pritzker Director of the Lens Media Lab at the Yale Institute for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage

In this talk, Martina Droth and Paul Messier explore the ways in which the distinctive expressive goals of Bill Brandt and Henry Moore came together through the mechanical reproducibility of photography. Going behind the scenes of their project, they discuss the objectives and challenges involved in creating an exhibition and book that foregrounds the material nuances of sculpture and photography side by side.

A recording of this program will be made available online. Please check back here soon.
