Gallery Talk: The Legacy of the New Topographics with Greg Foster Rice
Friday, September 30, 12–1 p.m. CT 
MoCP 

Join us for a talk with Greg Foster-Rice on the lasting influence of the New Topographics movement, which began in 1975 and marked a shift from artists creating romanticized depictions of pristine landscapes to using a seemingly detached or ironic approach. They photographed everyday locations, such as suburban developments and parking lots, where the interests of humans and nature frequently collide. Foster-Rice will delve into the history of this movement and its artists in Beyond the Frame, including including Robert Adams, Lewis Baltz, Joe Deal, Frank Gohlke, and Henry Wessel. Greg Foster-Rice is Associate Professor of Photography at Columbia College Chicago and co-editor of the anthology Reframing the New Topographics (Center for American Places, 2011).   

For in-person events, masks as well as proof of vaccination or proof of a negative Covid test within the last 72 hours are required for entry.
