Tina Barney speaks tonight at BU

The Photographic Resource Center at Boston University is hosting a Tina Barney lecture tonight.

"Join Tina Barney for a stimulating discussion of her highly influential and groundbreaking photography. Barney first came into prominence in the early 1980s for her ongoing project documenting the affluent lives of her family and close friends. However, it was her decision to partly construct what would otherwise be purely candid and personal moments that has also proven to be the artist's legacy and lasting influence. By infusing her work with both a candid and staged aesthetic, Barney is able to emphasize the psychological distance between and gestures of her subject as seen in her monographs Friends and Relations and Theater of Manners: Tina Barney. The artist has since gone on to other prominent bodies of work such as The Europeans and has most recently turned her attention to families and subjects living in China."
