Richard Turnbull to speak at Christie's
Rich will speak on Photography Transformed: The Digital Revolution and Beyond, 1990-2010 at Christie's Education, 11 West 42 Street, NYC, October 5, 2010, 6 to 8 PM. His talk is part of a four-lecture short course program conceived by Christie's Photographs and Christie's Education aimed at perfecting connoisseurship skills, and will cover topics such as historical processes and photography's place in contemporary art. The program is scholarly in intent and is not open to the general public. The course fee is $450.
Rich Turnbull holds the chair in art history at F.I.T. and lectures on photography at both the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum. He is also an artist and a contributor to this blog.
Christie's will follow up this course in December with a Champagne Tasting Master Class.
