FRANK LOPEZ
Frank Lopez
Frank Lopez considers himself an Antiquarian Avant-Garde photographer. He explores the different cultures and traditions of China, Korea and Vietnam through photography. Traveling with only a pinhole camera, he concentrates on aspects of local culture and variations of manufactured culture – areas of intentional cultural re-appropriation.
Lopez will discuss symbols associated with the found object – slaptags and graffiti art. The juxtaposition of found symbols initially captured with his iPhone and later interpreted into Tintypes and Ambrotypes explores the immediacy of the found object with the seemingly instant 19th Century version of the Polaroid. The ubiquitous smartphone allows the vehicle to bring the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries together.
LOLI KANTOR
Loli Kantor

Loli Kantor is a fine art and documentary photographer whose work is concerned with community and the human condition. Born in Paris, France, and raised in Israel, Kantor immigrated to the United States in 1984. Her recent work centers on Jewish life and culture in central and eastern Europe. As the daughter of Holocaust survivors, Kantor brings a deeply personal interest as well as a unique sensibility to this body of work. The project, entitled “Beyond The Forest”, was published by the University of Texas Press in November 2014 and will be available for purchase following the evening’s presentation.

 
Kantor’s work has garnered notable awards and recognition and has been exhibited widely in the United States and internationally. Her photographs are included in museum collections including The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Harry Ransom Center at The University of Texas at Austin; Lishui Museum of Photography in China; and Lviv National Museum in Ukraine as well as numerous private collections in the United States and abroad.

Artist Lecture, Sally Mann | Fort Worth Modern

Sally Mann
  • December 8, 2015 – 7:00pm

December 8
“As ephemeral as our footprints were in the sand along the river, so also were those moments of childhood caught in the photographs. And so will be our family itself, our marriage, the children who enriched it, and the love that has carried us through so much. All this will be gone. What we hope will remain are these pictures telling our brief story, but what will last, beyond all of it, is the place.” — Sally Mann, Hold Still: A Memoir with Photographs

A Special Lecture by Sally Mann

Sally Mann, one of America’s most renowned photographers, recently released her much-anticipated memoir Hold Still (Little, Brown and Company) to high acclaim. Patricia Wall of the New York Times compares Mann with none other than Walker Evans, stating, “I held Evans’s writing in mind while reading Hold Still, the photographer Sally Mann’s weird, intense and uncommonly beautiful new memoir. Ms. Mann has got Evans’s gift for fine and offbeat declaration.” Wall closes her review with, “The best quality of Hold Still — a book that strikes me as an instant classic among Southern memoirs of the last 50 years — is its ambient sense of an original, come-as-you-are life that has been well lived and well observed. It’s a book that dials open the aperture on your own senses. Like the photographs she most admires, it is rooted in particulars yet has ‘some rudiment of the eternal in it.’”

For this special presentation, artist Sally Mann reads from Hold Still: A Memoir with Photographs.

Come early for a book signing at 6 pm. Pre-order your book here.

For the December 8 presentation, a limited number of tickets (limit two per person) will be available for purchase ($5) from 10 am until 4:45 pm the day of the lecture by calling 817.738.9215. Free admission tickets (limit two per person) are available at the Modern’s information desk beginning at 5 pm on the day of the lecture.

This popular series of lectures and presentations by artists, architects, historians, and critics is free and open to the public.

Lectures begin at 7 pm in the Museum’s auditorium. Seating begins at 6:30 pm and is limited to 250; a live broadcast of the presentations is shown in Café Modern for any additional guests.The museum galleries remain open until 7 pm on Tuesday evenings during the series (general admission applies).

Café Modern serves cocktails and appetizers on Tuesday nights until 7 pm during the lecture series.
