Jessica Silverman Gallery
April 2 6-8 PM
Artist Matt Lipps and CCA visiting scholar Charlotte Cotton discuss Lipps’ current exhibition “The Populist Camera,” during this event hosted by the Jessica Silverman Gallery. The exhibition is a requiem for analog image-making that engages with the ubiquity of photography in the digital age. Using collage strategies, sculptural tropes and theatre staging techniques, Lipp’s series of intriguing still lives combine appropriated imagery with personal photographs. The event is free and open to the public.
Matt Lipps is an MFA graduate of the University of California, Irvine. His work is in the collection of Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, THe Pilara Foundation/Pier 24 and the Saatchi Gallery. He is Assistant Professor of Art at San Francisco State University.
Charlotte Cotton was curator of photographs at the Victoria and Albert Museum and head of the Wallis Annenberg department of Photography at LACMA. She is the author of The Photograph as Contemporary Art and founder of Words Without Pictures and Eitherland.org.
