Mark Steinmetz

Artist lecture Tuesday, April 02, 2013 7PM
Timken Lecture Hall, California College of the Arts, San Francisco
Barrow County, GA, 1994, from the series Greater Atlanta

Highly regarded for his black-and-white portraits, Mark Steinmetz is renowned for producing powerful pictures that capture the strong sense of displacement and isolation felt by many young Americans. His celebrated series of books Greater Atlanta, South East, and South Central – published between 2007 and 2009 – is a lyrical and evocative look at American culture and notions of progress. Steinmetz followed up on this classic trilogy with Summertime in 2011. In the spring of 2013 Nazraeli Press released Paris in My Time, work culled from several extended trips that the artist made to Paris over a twenty-five year period.

Steinmetz’s work is included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, Art Institute of Chicago, and Los Angeles County Museum of Art. He has taught at universities throughout the United States, include Harvard and Yale. Steinmetz currently resides in Athens, Georgia.

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.
