The Art of Photography Show Presents
When: Tuesday, October 27, 2009 at 7:00 pm
Location: Lyceum Theatre Gallery, Downtown San Diego in Horton Plaza
Curator Tim B. Wride will take a rollicking, no-holds-barred look at the photographers and the ideas behind his favorite images in the Art of Photography Show 2009. Be forewarned, he is not one to mince words. You will get his honest, though always constructive, opinions about the images and the art: good, bad and ugly.
Tim will share his process of researching artists and decision-making insights about what makes art worth investing in. This will be a valuable exercise for both collectors and artists.
Tim B. Wride is the founding Executive Director of the No Strings Foundation, a Los Angeles-based non-profit philanthropic organization that provides individual artist grants to U.S. photographers. Prior to his position with the Foundation, Mr. Wride spent 14 years at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) as a Curator in the Department of Photographs. During his tenure at LACMA, Mr. Wride curated over twenty-five permanent collection focus exhibitions as well as numerous larger exhibitions. As an independent curator, he is actively researching and mounting exhibitions with major museums internationally. He is also the founder of The Curatorial Eye, offering lectures, seminars, workshops, and mentoring to photographers, collectors, and not-for-profit institutions.
COMING SOON: Tim is launching a special course for photographers called Boot Camp. This is a three-month program of goal-setting, follow-up, follow-through, review sessions and accountability that is designed to strengthen your process, your conviction, and your eye as an artist.
