From photography’s earliest days, the medium has mingled science with magic. With scenes constructed from her personal cabinet of curiosities, Carol Golemboski’s work recalls this sense of amazement. Her hand-abraded negatives with additions of drawings and text evoke the fears and fascinations of womanhood and evince hazy memories that might be real and might not.
Golemboski is Associate Professor and Area Head of Photography at the University of Colorado Denver. Her monograph, Psychometry, was published by Flash Powder Press in 2016.
Doors open at 6:30 pm.
Each lecture is $5 for students, DAM members, and CPAC members, $10 general admission.
