Moving Pictures: Symposium on Illustration and Motion
On Wednesday, November 11, the BFA Illustration program at Parsons The New School for Design will present Moving Pictures, a symposium exploring ideas of motion in illustration.
The evening will be divided into four presentations moderated by Lauren Redniss, New School illustration faculty member, author of Century Girl and the forthcoming Radioactive, An Atomic Love Story.
Redniss will talk about secret lives and invisibility.
A conversation between writers Jody Rosen, music critic for Slate, and Joel Smith, curator of photography at the Princeton University Art Museum, will consider real and imaginary map making: Rosen, through his research on "The Knowledge," the exhaustive, mind-bending geographical training required of London taxi drivers and Smith, through the work of legendary cartoonist Saul Steinberg, best known for his work in The New Yorker.
Richard McGuire, artist, musician and current fellow at the New York Public Library's Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers, will screen his recent film Fears of the Dark and give a sneak preview of his new book.
The event is free and open to the public.
