Innamorato: Allen Frame and Lia Gangitano in Conversation
November 7, 2018 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Pratt Institute Photography Department is pleased to present “Innamorato: Allen Frame and Lia Gangitano in conversation” in correspondence with the solo exhibition of work by Allen Frame, Pratt Adjunct Professor of Photography, curated by Lia Gangitano, Director of Participant Inc. in the Pratt Photography Gallery. Three new photographic installations made in Rome are presented with previous photographs made in Florence twenty years ago, as well as one of Frame’s earliest Super 8 films. Revisiting a practice he began around 1990 in which photographs from his own archive were combined with found photographs, Frame’s recent wall compositions emanate from discrete photographic collections found in thrift stores, interspersed with found drawings, paintings, objects, and text, at times combined with photographs made by the artist. Frame is the recipient of the Abigail Cohen Rome Prize in Visual Arts from the American Academy in Rome in 2017/18.
Lectures are free and open to the Pratt community and to the public. Doors open at 6:30 PM for Pratt students, faculty, and staff. Doors open to the public at 6:45 PM. Space is limited.
