Daniel Faust and Lawrence Rinder: Artist Talks

Daniel Faust and Lawrence Rinder
Artist talks and a panel discussion “Scale, Context, and Community” with Alana Berglund from Holland Project

February 24, Thursday, 6pm, WRB 2006

"Scale, Context, and Community"
 Artist Daniel Faust and curator Lawrence Rinder will reflect on ways that scale, context, and community have influenced their respective practices. Faust, whose work often involves encyclopedic photographic arrays of subjects spanning the globe, will discuss a project focused on Alaska and another work-in-progress which will be his largest ever undertaking, including 15,000 works from 1981 to 2017. Rinder will contrast two exhibitions, Architecture of Life, which marked the re-opening of BAMPFA and included hundreds of works from many cultures and time periods and an upcoming exhibition that will take place in a tiny storefront gallery in the small ranching community of Cedarville, California (pop. 500).  

Daniel Faust is an internationally recognized photographer whose work often involves encyclopedic photographic arrays of subjects spanning the globe. Daniel Faust’s slide/film archive consists of 20,000 images from across America, Europe, Asia, South Africa, the Middle East, Brazil, India, New Zealand and elsewhere.
