Lecture: Tue, Oct 23, 7pm
Alex Prager (American, born in 1979) is a self-taught photographer, taking her cues from pulp fiction, the cinematic style of David Lynch, Alfred Hitchcock, and Luis Buñuel as well as contemporary artists such as William Eggleston, Cindy Sherman, and Enrique Metinides. Prager's photographs are are full of carefully constructed melodrama, often featuring retro-looking women in bright, crisp clothing with dramatic lighting and unusual angles. Prager was one of only four artists featured in New Photography 2010 at MoMA, and is represented by M+B Gallery in Los Angeles, Yancey Richardson Gallery in New York, and Michael Hoppen Gallery in London.
Alex Prager is featured as one of 10 exceptional artists represented in the Elton John AIDS Foundation Photography Portfolio II, produced by the foundation and published by Jackson Fine Art, Atlanta. Sales of the Photography Portfolio II help EJAF to raise important funds for critically needed HIV prevention programs in under-served communities.
This lecture is presented in partnership with the Elton John AIDS Foundation, Jackson Fine Art, and the High Museum of Art.
