Art Study Center Seminar: The Story of the Print—Photographs from the Schneider/Erdman Printer’s Proof Collection


Friday, June 29, 2018, 11:00am to 12:00pm


Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street

In this seminar, artist and printer Gary Schneider will join Jennifer Quick, the John R. and Barbara Robinson Family Associate Research Curator in Photography, to discuss photographs he printed for such artists as Robert Gober, John Schabel, and Peter Hujar. Schneider worked with these artists as co-owner of the lab Schneider/Erdman, Inc., founded with his partner John Erdman in 1981 and located in Manhattan’s East Village. Schneider and Quick will explore the stories behind these photographs, looking closely at the many technical and conceptual decisions involved in the making of each work.
This seminar complements the exhibition Analog Culture: Printer’s Proofs from the Schneider/Erdman Photography Lab, 1981–2001, on view May 19–August 12, 2018.
