Join DuMA for a gallery walk looking at selected works from the exhibition Remnants of the West: Edward S. Curtis and Mark James, with Executive Director David Schmitz, Associate Curator and Registrar Stacy Peterson, and Director of Education, Margaret Buhr. There is no charge for this event.
Join DuMA for Time Capsules: Photography and Anachronism, a lecture by photography historian and curator George Slade focusing on the Museum’s current exhibit Remnants of the West: Edward S. Curtis and Mark James.
Both Edward Curtis and Mark James use their photographic skills to transport us into other times and spaces. How do their images reflect photography’s unique capacity to represent history? This lecture will explore the question specifically in regards to Curtis and James, and more broadly as a phenomenon singular to the medium.
Lecture is free. Attendees are invited to tour the museum galleries and exhibit Remnants of the West after the talk at no charge.
