$10 Public, $5 Students with id.

Learn about Iturbide before you attend her in person lecture. Here she discusses her work in the film “Hay Tiempo” produced by the Getty Museum. “Take a poetic journey with Mexican photographer Graciela Iturbide as she imparts the personal and cultural themes that inform her artistic vision and thread throughout her work. Filmmaker Alejandro Gómez de Tuddo follows Iturbide as she reveals her heart–from the religious legends she holds dear; to her regard for the dead “angelitos” or little angels of the cemetery; and her esteem for the virtues of St. John of the Cross’s Solitary Bird: he flies only at great heights, tolerates no one’s company, juts out his beak into the wind, and sings gently. In Spanish with English subtitles.”

Born in 1930 in Randfontein, South Africa, David Goldblatt began photographing in 1948 and is best known for intimately documenting developments in South Africa from the period of Apartheid to present-day.

In 1998, he was the first South African to be given a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York, and has since exhibited at both Documenta 11 (2002) and Documenta 12 (2007) in Kassel, Germany. More recently, his work was examined in Intersections Intersected: The Photography of David Goldblatt at the New Museum and South African Photographs: David Goldblatt at the Jewish Museum, New York. Goldblatt will be featured in the exhibition South Africa In Apartheid and After at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art starting in December 2012.

Goldblatt is the recipient of the 2006 Hasselblad award, the 2009 Henri Cartier-Bresson Award and was a 2010 Lucie Award Lifetime Achievement Honoree.
