Lecture in Photography: Barbara Kasten

The Museum of Contemporary Photography will host a Lecture in Photography with photographer Barbara Kasten, whose work transforms architecture into formal abstract compositions.

The Museum of Contemporary Photography and the Photography Department will welcome photographer Barbara Kasten for a Lecture in Photography.

Barbara Kasten’s photographs and video projections are composed using various lighting techniques, color gels, and mirrors to transform architecture into formal abstract compositions. Her work, while abstract, is subversively political, inviting viewers to question their own perceptions while engaging with movements through modernist architecture.

Originally from Chicago, Kasten is the recipient of many prestigious awards. Her work has been widely exhibited by major museums in the United States, Europe, and Japan. Her photographs are in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago; International Center of Photography, New York; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Museum of Modern Art, Lodz, Poland; and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, among others.
