Photographer Annie Hogan will be the featured speaker for the first Artalk of the spring semester at Emory & Henry College.
Her lecture, which will be held Monday, Jan. 27, is in conjunction with her exhibit, "Half Seen; Half Told," on view in The 1912 Gallery from Tuesday, Jan. 14 through Saturday, Feb. 8.
Hogan pushes the possibilities of photography in her haunting images that are a sensitive exploration of the politics of the South. She draws material from civil war re-enactments, slave cabins and plantation houses. Her photographs address the subject matter with highly evolved aestheticism, resulting in lush, poetic work.
Her research includes how architecture that is used to protect and imprison is used to reinforce and maintain power. Hogan is a native of Australia and visiting assistant professor of photography at Rutgers University.
Gallery hours are Noon-5 p.m. daily, Tuesday-Saturdays each week. The exhibition will also open at 6:30 -7:20 prior to the Artalk and following for a reception with the Ms. Hogan.
