10×10 Salon: Stefan Vanthuyne and Deirdre Donohue
Wednesday, 28 March 2018 at 6:30 p.m.
By invitation only. RSVP required.
Please join 10×10 Photobooks for a salon with photographer, photobook-maker and photobook collector Stefan Vanthuyne from Belgium—and a “Spotlight Talk on Dare Wright” by librarian, educator and artist Deirdre Donohue.
Stefan Vanthuyne is a writer, researcher and photographer. He publishes books and writes about photography and photobooks; he is a member of the editorial board of Forum+, a researcher on photobook culture at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp (and a member of its photography group, Thinking Tools), and in 2017 Vanthuyne began a project on contemporary Belgian photobooks, Belgian Platform for Photobooks.
10×10 is adding a new format to our salon series called Spotlight Talks. On occasion they will invite curators, collectors and librarians to present a focused talk on one or two “special books” that they find of interest. Their first Spotlight Talk will be with Deirdre Donohue, speaking about the photographer/book-maker Dare Wright (1914-2001). An unabashed Wright enthusiast, Donohue exclaims, “Wonderful photobooks—I would like everyone to see them and to know about Dare Wright”.
Deirdre Donohue is a librarian, educator and artist. She is Managing Research Librarian at the New York Public Library’s Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Division, Adjunct Faculty at Pratt Institute’s School of Information and at the ICP/Bard MFA Program in Advanced Photographic Studies. Prior to NYPL, Deirdre spent half her career at the International Center of Photography and half at Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute.
As always, books will be available for viewing.
10×10 Photobooks Salons offer a space to get together with photobook publishers, authors and collectors in an informal atmosphere over a glass of wine or beer.
