Reflections: Fashion, Photography, and Modernism in the 1960s

In conjunction with the exhibition Diane Arbus: Family Albums

Followed by a reception and viewing of Marimekko at the BGC

In this panel discussion, Patricia Johnston, professor of art history, Salem State College, will examine the impact of modernist theory, feminism, and other social trends on both fine and applied photography of the 1960s; Tony Vaccaro, photographer, will present his now-famous photographs of Marimekko fashions; and Anthony W. Lee, co-curator of Diane Arbus: Family Albums and associate professor of art history at Mount Holyoke College, will consider whether Arbus’s images of New York subcultures were shaped by her work for the fashion magazines, and will address the relationship between the modern, the grotesque, and the handsome in her art.

Organized by the Bard Graduate Center in collaboration with the Grey Art Gallery, and offered in conjunction with Marimekko: Fabrics, Fashion, Architecture, on view at the Bard Graduate Center, 18 West 86th Street, until February 15, 2004.
