Catherine Wagner, Metallic Construction II, 1976. OCT 10, 2018 ARTIST TALK: CATHERINE WAGNER 7:00–9:00 pm, DANFORTH LECTURE HALL Catherine Wagner will revisit 40-years of her work as a photographer, mining the built environment—urban transit structures, laboratories, museums, theme parks—for evidence of how cultures and histories are represented by material spaces and artifacts. Through photography Wagner categorizes these constructions of knowledge into visual typologies—a process she describes as ‘archaeology in reverse.’
