Kathy Battista’s newest publication New York New Wave: The Legacy of Feminist Art will be the focal point in a panel discussion addressing the history of women artists and their intersections with the canon of art history, the legacy of second-wave feminist artists today, the current popularization of feminism in the mass-media and digital platforms, as well as the trajectory for the movement in the 21st century. Battista as moderator will engage intergenerational artists Betty Tompkins, Martine Gutierrez and Cindy Hinant will give frank accounts of their engagement with feminism, the art world, and how their histories are recorded.

The Aspen Institute | Society of Fellows Discussion Reception Series New York presents:
Exploring Art's Legacy: Cultural Value vs. Financial Asset
A panel discussing the legal, strategic, and market challenges unique to art’s dual nature as important to culture as well as an asset class.
The Photographers’ Gallery is pleased to present an artist talk and book signing with the veteran American photographer Charles H. Traub. Traub will be in conversation with artist Richard Wentworth in The Photographers’ Gallery Bookshop discussing his most recent series Taradiddle the subject of his new book of the same name which features an introduction by David Campany.
This recent body of work has been the sought out for over twenty years not by the divining rod of a specific theme but by the momentary chances occurrences that happen within an instant all around us. Taradiddle is a collection that covers multiple themes, sometime simultaneously, such as coincidence, humor, disquiet and serendipity in over a hundred stills. These colourful and witty photographs display the genuine and delightful nature in the ongoing human comedy of modern life.
Traub has in the sheer volume and diversity of subjects and places captured the common incongruities of a global society in a cultural commentary. He took these pictures from around the world: Dubai, Shanghai, Beijing, Rome, Tunis, Buenos Aires, Budapest, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Santo Domingo, to name a just few cities. These photographic wanderings embraced full integration of daily digital image-making which has become a common and less scared habit.
Charles Traub has described these trifles as such:
“The taradiddle reveals the world as constructed by the camera. And in being manufactures by the camera it is inevitably a kind of white lie. There’s no history, there’s no context, no truth in the actual picture. Rather a semblance of such - there is existential truth in the collective body of work”
Today photographs are a common encounter and thus the poignant chance and sardonic moments are more frequently captured. Taradiddle is a pointed collection that tells what the lens sees in the unedited, unexpected honesties we forget as soon as the moment passes. Traub is only giving a frame for these instances while seeking and discovering the pretentious and hilarious nonsense of existence.
About Charles H. Traub

Traub has more than a dozen books to his credit and sixty major exhibitions including one person shows at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Hudson River Museum and the Historic New Orleans Collection.

About Richard Wentworth
Richard Wentworth has played a leading role in British sculpture since the end of the 1970s. His work has altered the traditional definition of sculpture and photography. By transforming and manipulating industrial or found objects into works of art, Wentworth's sculpture subverts their original function and extends our understanding of them by breaking the conventional system of classification. In the field of photography, especially through the ongoing series Making Do and Getting By, Wentworth documents the everyday, paying attention to objects, occasional and involuntary geometries as well as uncanny situations that often go unnoticed.
This event is free to public, no RSVP required.
