Diane Arbus
« on: February 26, 2015, 09:08:11 PM »
Exhibition running at Kirkcaldy Galleries in Fife until 2th March.
Also of interest on 21st March are two lectures......

"Join Caroline Douglas and David Grindley, lecturers from Edinburgh's Stills Gallery as they present their views on the work of Diane Arbus from two opposing points of view.
The work of Diane Arbus has often sparked debate. This morning and afternoon of lectures will present two different approaches for looking at and criticising the work, encouraging the audience to join the conversation and share their opinions."

Let the sparks fly  ;)

I'm sure they will! If anybody's work could divide opinion it would be her's, no so much her style but her choice of subject matter. Coming from a relatively sheltered privileged background I can see that the more unusual and afflicted subjects, that would never enter her realm of society, would appear quaint and of interest to the masses.

If you have two protagonists diametrically opposed in their opinions then it should be enjoyable
