Public Program

Persevere Young Man: Grace Robertson and Picture Post, 21 October 2021
Presented by the curator of the Getty Images Hulton Archive, Melanie Llewellyn will also be sharing details on a new edit of Robertson’s unpublished material, as part of a project expanding the representation of Picture Post’s female photographers.
Elinor Carucci 1986 till today, 8 November 2021
In this talk, Carrucci will discuss different bodies of work, including editorial projects created in collaboration with magazines. Her talk will focus on her most recent book Midlife – a vivid chronicle of the passage through aging, family, illness, and intimacy. This period of life is universal to everyone, yet this narrative — in all its nuance — is strikingly absent from our cultural dialogue. Midlife invites us to witness and reflect on the experiences we all share contending with the challenges of life, love, and change.
