Cuny Janssen

Artist lecture Friday, November 18, 2011 7PM
Timken Lecture Hall, California College of the Arts, San Francisco
Prince Albert, Karoo, South Africa, 2005

Cuny Janssen is an artist based in Amsterdam who works with photography and the photography book as art object. Alluding to a rich history of portraiture, her color images actively engage the portrait as psychological space and philosophical construct. In addition, Janssen often includes landscapes and environmental images that emphasize her attraction to the “resourcefulness of life” in both humans and nature.

Janssen’s works have been shown at FOAM (Amsterdam, Netherlands), The Photographer’s Gallery (London, UK), Paris Photo (Paris, France), as well as many other international galleries and institutions.

Marco Breuer (b. Landshut, Germany) is well known for his radical approach to the photographic medium. Breuer employs nontraditional photographic techniques that do not rely on the use of a camera, aperture, or film, but instead utilize a combination of photogrammic, abrasive, and incisive techniques to make marks and capture images. His work is in numerous public collections at major institutions around the world and is widely exhibited throughout the United States and Europe. Currently residing in upstate New York, Breuer has lectured and taught extensively, and received a Guggenheim fellowship in 2006.
