Davison Art Center
Conversation in the gallery with Professor Andrew Szegedy-Maszak and Curator Clare Rogan at 5:30pm.Photography has evolved dramatically since 1970, when Wesleyan's Jane A. Seney Professor of Greek, Professor of Classical Studies and Environmental Studies Andrew Szegedy-Maszak started collecting. Converging to a Center: Photographs from the Collection of Andrew Szegedy-Maszak and Elizabeth Bobrick highlights 35 photographs acquired in the last two decades, photographs that reveal the shift from the intimate scale of gelatin-silver prints to immersive large-scale color digital images. The internationalism of photography today is evident in works by Adou, Philip-Lorca DiCorcia, George Georgiuo, Richard Misrach, and Abelardo Morell.
