Discover Medium’s 2017 Present Tense Lecturers
Medium is defined by an exceptional program of artist lectures—creative voices in the field who share their recent work and creative development with you. The 2017 lectures kick off with a Keynote Lecture by John Gossage on Oct. 27. John Gossage is a revered artist who got his start at the Leo Castelli Gallery (in a two-person show with Jasper Johns, no less)!
The weekend continues with lectures by Justyna Badach, Claudia Kunin, John Chiara, Christina Seely, and J. Grant Brittain. Discover their work on our website and pick up a Festival Pass today—discounted registration is available online through Oct. 15.
Meet Claudia Kunin on Oct. 28 at 11am
Claudia Kunin is a Los Angeles native who has maintained a career in photography for more than 30 years. Her recent work as a filmmaker involves her use of family photographs, which the artist meticulously animates into short films that tell haunting, evocative stories. In 3-D!
The artist will discuss her career and current work as part of Medium’s Present Tense lecture series at 11:00am on Sat., Oct. 28. Festival participants will be invited a free film screening with the artist at the Digital Gym beginning at 7:00pm. We’re honored to have Claudia Kunin’s lecture as part of the 2017 Festival.
