The Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (MMoCA) invites you to join us for a virtual photo workshop and critique. For those interested in the program, please watch the gallery talk by MMoCA Curator Emritus Rick Axsom's informative video (link provided on our website) on the work of photographer James Cagle, whose exhibition James Cagle: A Final Mediation on Art is on display at MMoCA through January 31, 2021. The video addresses the artist’s photographic techniques and subjects, demonstrating how Cagle utilized the formalist language of modernist photography to transform familiar objects and overlooked spaces into elegant compositions.
The Workshop will be a group discussion of participants’ work that may be similar to or inspired by Cagle’s approach. All participants—Cagle’s former students, admirers of Cagle’s work, or artists who enjoy and appreciate modernist photography— are welcome.
The Workshop will be led by MMoCA Assistant Curator Elizabeth Shoshany Anderson, and will take place on Tuesday, January 26, at 5pm. Those interested are invited to register in advance. This event is free and open to the public.
