Just in time for the opening of his latest exhibition in New York City, SVA is hosting a talk by photographer Thomas Struth, who will speak about his work with photography writer Gil Blank on Monday, May 10, 6:30pm, at the SVA Theatre, 333 West 23rd Street. Struth first came to prominence in the 70s with his black-and-white cityscapes, and has since focused on the contemporary confluence of nature, technology and architecture. The discussion, which will spotlight the shifting status of the photograph as social record, is being presented by the BFA Photography Department and Dear Dave, magazine. Admission is free and open to the public.
An exhibition of new works by Struth is on view at Marian Goodman Gallery, 24 West 57th Street, through Saturday, June 19; on Friday, June 11, a retrospective of his work will open at the Kunsthaus Zürich and then travel throughout Europe.
