Chris McCaw: Marking Time Artist Talk and Book Launch
With Cantor Arts Center Assistant Curator Maggie Dethloff
Saturday, January 20, 2024, 2pmBayfront Theater (BATS Improv) at Fort Mason, San Francisco
PhotoAlliance and Haines Gallery are excited to co-host an artist talk and book launch for Chris McCaw‘s new monograph Marking Time reflecting work the artist has made with solarized paper negatives in the last ten years. Joining McCaw for the conversation is Cantor Arts Center Assistant Curator of Photography and New Media Maggie Dethloff.
This event is happening in conjunction with the FOG Design+Art fair, where McCaw will have works on view in the Haines Gallery booth alongside PhotoAlliance alumni speakers Meghann Riepenhoff and John Chiara.
Chris McCaw’s artistic practice is firmly rooted in the history of photography while pushing the medium in new directions. In McCaw’s iconic Sunburn series, the lenses in the artist’s handmade cameras function as magnifying glasses, allowing the sun to literally burn its path across the light-sensitive negatives that are often solarized in the process.
Our thanks to Haines Gallery for their generous partnership on this event!
