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.

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.
