VISITING ARTIST: ALEC SOTH – GATHERED LEAVES
The Department of Art + Art History at The University of Texas at Arlington is pleased to announce the First Annual Arlington Camera Lecture Series sponsored by Arlington Camera. The series launches at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 21, in room 148 of the Fine Arts Building, 700 Greek Row Drive.
The event features Alec Soth, a Minneapolis-based photographer known for his photographs and many publications. He will discuss his newest project, “Gathered Leaves”, in conversation with his friend and colleague Anne Wilkes Tucker.
Soth’s photographs have been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions, including the 2004 Whitney and São Paulo Biennials. Soth’s first monograph, Sleeping by the Mississippi, was published by Steidl in 2004 to critical acclaim. Since then Soth has published NIAGARA(2006), Fashion Magazine (2007) Dog Days, Bogotá (2007) The Last Days of W (2008), andBroken Manual (2010). In 2008, a large survey exhibition of Soth’s work was exhibited at Jeu de Paume in Paris and Fotomuseum Winterthur in Switzerland. The Walker Art Center produced a large survey exhibition of Soth’s work entitled From Here To There in 2010 and since that time Soth has been the recipient of numerous fellowships and awards, including the Guggenheim Fellowship (2013).
Tucker recently retired from the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston where she served as founding curator of the photography department. It was for her work there that Tucker was named America’s Best Curator by TIME magazine in 2001. Over the course of her career at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Tucker organized or co-organized more than 40 exhibitions, including landmark presentations that helped define scholarship of underexplored areas of the medium. These include Czech Modernism: 1900–1945 (1989), The History of Japanese Photography (2003), and the currently touring WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath (2012), an unprecedented exploration of war through the eyes of photographers. She has also authored dozens of publications, including theWAR/PHOTOGRAPHY exhibition catalogue, which received the prestigious 2013 Kraszna-Krausz Book Award for best photography book.
There will be a reception for the speakers in the Gallery at UTA beginning at 6 p.m., with the artist’s lecture immediately following at 7 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public. For more information, please go to http://www.uta.edu/art or call 817-272-2891.

Miss Representation at Texas Woman’s University
Thursday, March 26th, at 6:00 p.m. CFO 203
Film Screening: Miss Representation w/ Director Ms. Jennifer Siebel Newsom
Miss Representation reveals the betrayal of women in the media. The film demonstrates how society is misguided by media content, which generally highlights the mere physical attributes and nurturing abilities of women, but limits recognition of their intellectual capabilities. The film also uncovers how successful women in various careers are still deprived of respect and recognition for their achievements in comparison to the male gender. Miss Representation will leave the audience thinking of the many opportunities our world could be deprived of if women’s endeavors continue to go unsupported or underrepresented.
Join our guest speaker; film Director, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, as she discusses Miss Representation and its efforts to raise awareness about stamping out inequality and discrimination. The event is sponsored by Commuter Services and Lasso 100th in celebration of Women in the Media and International Women’s Day.
