Lunch + Lecture: Scale as Metaphor: Edward Burtynsky Photographs by Kirsten Hoving PhD.

Presented by I.D.E.A. Space at IDEA Space

At this lunch and lecture, Art Historian Kirsten Hoving will discuss the work of photographer Edward Burtynsky, featured in the IDEA Space exhibition Hydro-Logic. Known for his remarkable photographic depictions of global industrial landscapes, Burtynsky explores the collective impact we as a species are having on the surface of the planet. Equally eloquent and disturbing, his work offers an inspection of the human systems we've imposed onto natural landscapes. After earning her Ph.D. at Columbia University, Kirsten Hoving joined the faculty of Middlebury in 1983. She teaches modern art and history of photography. Her most recent book, Joseph Cornell and Astronomy: A Case for the Stars, was published by Princeton University Press in 2009.
