Event Description:
Seymour Rosen: You Haven't Seen Everything Yet!

In conjunction with the opening of an exhibition of Rosen's black and white photographs of mid-century Los Angeles, Thompson Gallery Director and Exhibition Curator Jo Farb Hernández will discuss his work and his holistic approach to the world's visuals. Although primarily known as a documentary photographer, Rosen explored his creativity by casting a wide net; among other genres, he produced photographs and photographed happenings, installation and performance arts, street scenes, architecture, and landscapes. He realized that the "extemporaneous individual acts of people declaring their existence" were universal, but as so many of them were ephemeral, they were also almost universally unrecorded in a consistent manner. Approaching the world holistically, he set out to fill that gap, melding sometimes stark documentary work along with elegant and artful experiments with light and form.

About the Thompson Gallery: An acclaimed weekly lecture series brings in artists, designers, and critical theorists from around the world, broadening the students’ experiential base and complementing local offerings.
