Photographer James Casebere presents work at Wake Forest
By Pam Barrett
Internationally renowned photographer James Casebere will present his photography and give a lecture at Wake Forest University at 4 p.m. Oct. 13 in Scales Fine Arts Center, Room 102. The event is free and open to the public.
Wake Forest recently purchased a piece of Casebere's art to add to the university's Student Union Collection. The artwork will be exhibited in the Charlotte and Philip Hanes Art Gallery after the presentation.
Casebere is one of the first post-modern artists to become known for creating images or illusions for the camera. His work, which consists of table-top constructions of the built environment, portrays the point at which photography, architecture and sculpture intersect.
Casebere has exhibited extensively in the United States and internationally. Most recently, he was asked to participate in a traveling exhibit organized by the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) in Winston-Salem.
The event is sponsored by the Student Union.
