CANCELED: STEIDL X STRAND: Views of Japan
Friday December 1: 7:00PM – 8:00PM
Please Note: Due to unforeseen circumstances, this event has been canceled. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Steidl Week concludes with a free discussion at the School of Visual Arts!
Please join us for a discussion and slideshow presentation with Gloria Katz and Willard Huyck, two renowned filmmakers (American Graffiti, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, French Postcards) who began collecting Japanese photography more than a decade ago, and whose ongoing hunt seems indeed like a Hollywood movie. A memoir about their love of Japanese photography and their experiences collecting it, Views of Japan makes available a selection of rare masterpieces from their extensive collection, along with a personal “script” recounting how they scouted, debated, selected and ultimately acquired many of the works. This was no small undertaking considering the rarity of some of the images, particularly those taken before the 1970s. The result is a distinctly personal presentation of one of the great private collections of Japanese photography in the world.
Join us for a conversation and signing with Gloria Katz and Willard Huyck. The School of Visual Arts is located at 333 W 23rd St, New York, NY 10011.
