Talk - A Picture You Already Know at LACMA.

Tomorrow (Thursday):

This debate explores the often unspoken issue of repetition (of visual forms and subject matter) in contemporary photography. Charlotte Cotton, curator and head of the Department of Photography, will discuss with Amy Adler, Alex Slade and Penelope Umbrico the conscious and unconscious ways in which individual photographers deal with repetition.

Free; tickets required. Brown Auditorium. 7 p.m.

I'll be there to try to challenge my view that repitition is often a cheap trick the art world loves to fall for. Damn those Bechers.
