"Exhibited in Photographs: Objects, Displays, & the Installation Shots that Define Them"

Dr. Kathryn Floyd is Associate Professor of modern art at Auburn University. Her research focuses on 20th-century Germany through the history and historiography of art exhibitions and their mediation in catalogues, installation photographs, and film. Her current book project explores the concept of the “installation shot,” through an exploration of photographs that document Wilhelm Lehmbruck’s Expressionist sculpture Kneeling Woman (1911) at different landmark modernist exhibitions in Germany and the United States between 1912 and 1955. Other recent projects include guest editing a special issue of the journal Dada/Surrealism on the history of avant-garde art exhibitions and on-going collaborative research on the historiography of Dada studies.

The Interdisciplinary Modernism/s Workshop, in collaboration with the Association of Graduate Art Students (AGAS), welcomes Dada scholar and Auburn professor Kathryn Floyd for a ModSquad work-in-progress workshop. Please join us at the School of Art for a roundtable discussion of Dr. Floyd's research on exhibition photography in early twentieth-century Germany and the US. Refreshments will be served.
