Kim-Lee Kho on Taking a Look at Contemporary Portraiture

S19ASPE2

Sunday Apr. 28, 2019

2:00pm - 4:00pm

 

In this heavily-illustrated talk, Kim-Lee Kho will take you on a tour looking at some of the fascinating and sometimes surprising ideas, approaches, influences and media being used and combined in contemporary portraiture. Ranging from exquisite to outrageous; representational to rejections of it; the imaginary to photo-based; and working with interference, disruption, flux and complexity; the range and diversity reflects the complexity of our contemporary world. See the Contemporary Portraits: It’s Not About the Likeness workshop with Kim-Lee Kho.

 

Artist Talk with Clare Ross

S19ASPE3

Sunday May 26, 2019

2:00pm – 4:00pm

 

Photography is not often considered a high-art form. Does it count? Should I like it? Is it worth anything? Doesn't everyone take fabulous shots with their iPhone? Photography doesn't have a long history in the world of art - at least not long compared to painting. But it doesn't take long to see that the camera can be used to create powerful art, just like any other tool in the hands of an artist. Clare Ross will address the controversy around photography as art, show us how the camera is a creative tool and talk about why those iPhone photos might not print as well as you expect. Clare’s work will be on display at NPCC in her exhibition, Conversations with Nature, for the 2019 Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.
