NYC photographer Whitaker presents lecture at Tulane Jan. 23

Hannah Whitaker, a New York-based artist and photographer who recently published her first book, “Imaginary Landscape No. 1,” will present a Visiting Artist Lecture at Tulane University in New Orleans on the evening of Wednesday, Jan. 23.

The lecture is set to  begin at 6 p.m., in the Freeman Auditorium of Tulane’s Woldenberg Art Center.

The lecturer will be introduced by NOPA member Sophie Lvoff.

Whittaker’s book, noted above, features photos that explore and are based on the structure of the works of composer John Cage, including a composition that shares the name of her book.

Whitaker has also recently created a program called “Lines of Sight” at the online photography magazine and curatorial space Triple Canopy, in which contemporary photographers give public readings of passages from fiction that describe photography as a subject, as well as adopt photographic strategies of framing, staging and manipulation.

This lecture is being presented via the Tulane Graduate Studies Student Association and the Joan Mitchell Center on Bayou Road in New Orleans.

Her work has also appeared in Blind Spot Magazine, Vice magazine and 0-100 Editions.
