Massachusetts College of Art Tower Building, 621 Huntington Ave, Boston, MA
MassArt's Fall Photography Lecture Series Presents: Sara VanDerBeek
2:00 - 3:00PM FREE

Sara VanDerBeek (born 1976), is an American photography artist who lives and works in New York City. She is known for photographing sculptures and assemblages of her own making, some of which she destroys after the photos have been taken, as well as for creating images of classical figures and architectural details and their relationship to space.

VanDerBeek's work, which is in the permanent collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, and the Brooklyn Museum, focuses on photographs of assemblages that she creates in her studio. Her work was included in "New Photography 2009" at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

deCordova presents the 2014 Rappaport Lecture: Liz Deschenes
Massachusetts College of Art and Design Tower Auditorium
621 Huntington Ave

Join artist Liz Deschenes and deCordova's community at her evening lecture at the Tower Auditorium at MassArt. This event is free and open to the public.

Deschenes is the 2014 recipient of deCordova's prestigious Rappaport Prize, an annual award given to an established contemporary artist with ties to the New England area. Born in Boston, educated in Rhode Island, and currently a professor at Vermont's Bennington College, Deschenes has been described by the New York Times as "one of the quiet giants of post-conceptual photography." In her work, Deschenes strips the medium of photography to its essential core through a body of abstract and now sculptural photographic installations.

Created in 2000 and endowed in 2010, the Rappaport Prize is an annual art award presented by deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum through the generosity of the Phyllis and Jerome Lyle Rappaport Foundation. Each prize is given to celebrate the achievement and potential of an artist who has demonstrated significant creativity and vision, and to encourage said artist to continue in a career of innovative art-making.
