R.C. May Photography Lecture Series: Corey Keller

Friday, October 5, 4 – 5 pm
Gatton Student Center,  Worsham Cinema, FREE

 

Corey Keller, curator of photography at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, oversees a collection of more than 12,000 images and organizes exhibitions ranging from nineteenth-century work to contemporary practice. These include Brought to Light: Photography and the Invisible, 1840-1900, which focused on scientific innovations such as X-rays and microscopy. The exhibition Francesca Woodman marked the first serious examination of work by the troubled and precocious artist, who started photographing at 14 and whose suicide at 22 left behind a trove of staged photographs of herself and others.

 

Keller is a frequent contributor to exhibition catalogues and other publications. She was an organizer of the symposium Is Photography Over? in 2010, and its follow-up, The Photographic Event, in 2016. She has taught at Stanford University, the San Francisco Art Institute, and the California College of the Arts, and is currently at work on a major retrospective of Dawoud Bey’s photography.
