Pictures at an Exhibition
Artist walk-through with Eli Hollander
followed by reception at Porter Faculty Gallery, UC Santa Cruz
Sponsored by Porter College and Film and Digital Media Department.
Eli will discuss the images he has collected from museums around the United States and talk about related series.
In 1974, Hollander came to Santa Cruz as a founding member of UCSC's Film and Digital Media Department. He served as acting provost of Porter College, then called College V, from 1980-81 and was chair of Aesthetic Studies from 1977-1980. He retired in 2013 and no longer is making films and prefers seeking moments of order in modern chaos through his still photography. This series Pictures at an Exhibition, title inspired by the musical work in 10 movements by Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky, is a collection of images from several exhibitions in the Bay Area, Chicago, Washington D.C., and NY City since 2014. Hollander said, "the camera in a museum makes me experience art in a very different way and I find connections with the people interacting within my compositions."
