Sally Stein, the UCLA Arts Council Distinguished Scholar Lecturer for 2024, will deliver her second talk in this two-lecture series on Monday, February 5th.
Please join us for her upcoming talk entitled, “For Pleasure or Profit & Power? The Beckoning (& still early reckoning) of Color in Interwar American Mass Media & Culture.”
After a brief consideration of one photographer’s rather surprising embrace of color photography – for the photographer in question, Gisèle Freund, had quite recently in the mid 1930s published the first doctoral thesis on nineteenth century photography’s development in which she denounces all additions of color – this lecture broadens its focus to consider the interwar emergence of modern color in mass media in a comparative international context.
The event will be held in Royce 306 from 4 to 6pm, with a reception to follow.
All are welcome to attend!
