VISITING ARTIST LECTURE SERIES
Art @ Noon: “Re-thinking Difference and Desire: Surrealism, Nature, and Victorian Photography”
The speaker will be Jo Briggs, Associate Curator of Eighteenth- and Nineteenth-Century Art at the Walters Art Museum.
"It is a different nature which speaks to the camera than speaks to the eye,” Walter Benjamin, A Short History of Photography
Taking this quotation from Benjamin as a starting point can difference and desire in Victorian photography be imagined in a new way? Perception and reception, similarity and difference, agency and authorship came into question as the Victorians confronted the way that photography revealed nature’s ability to make signs. This talk explores how themes of metamorphosis and transformation were central to the reception of daguerreotypes of the natural world, qualities later explore by the Surrealists.
