Laura Gilpin’s “Pueblo”: a journey into one of the archive collections of the Amon Carter Museum of American Art
10 am US Central / 11 am US Eastern / h17.00 Italy
This presentation will provide an overview of the research project of the current Fellow in Photograph Conservation, Ariadna Rodriguez. The project will investigate connections between objects, such as negatives, prints, and documents in the Laura Gilpin archive preserved at the Amon Carter Museum. The research will also explore the technical and creative processes Gilpin employed to produce her book “Pueblo: A Camera Chronicle”, as well as shifts in the photographer’s technique and style during this period (1921-1940). Gilpin’s work will be researched using equipment from the Amon Carter Museum’s conservation laboratory.
