ARCANA presents Anthony Hernandez in conversation with Thomas Demand

Saturday, October 8, from 4-6PM, Arcana: Books on the Arts and the Photographic Arts Council Los Angeles present American street photographer Anthony Hernandez, whose work is on view at SFMOMA, in conversation with German sculptor / photographer Thomas Demand. Book signing to follow.

ARCANA presents Anthony Hernandez in conversation with Thomas Demand

Since the early 1970s, when he began photographing on the streets of his native Los Angeles, Anthony Hernandez has consistently pushed his practice into uncharted territory. Challenging himself by adopting new formats and subject matter, moving from black and white to color, from 35mm to large-format cameras, and from the human figure to landscapes to abstracted detail, he has produced an unusually varied body of work united by its arresting beauty and subtle engagement with social issues. At first largely unaware of the formal traditions of the medium, Hernandez developed his own style of street photography, one uniquely attuned to the desolate allure and sprawling expanses of LA.

Published in conjunction with the photographer’s major career-spanning retrospective at SFMoMA, Anthony Hernandez is a beautifully designed and printed hardbound catalogue featuring an introduction by Robert Adams, texts by Erin O'Toole, Ralph Rugoff, Lewis Baltz, and Anthony Hernandez, and an extensive selection of images - including many that have until now never been exhibited or published. It represents the full range and breadth of Hernandez’ work tracing his evolution as well as highlighting continuities across his practice.

Mr. Hernandez will be signing copies of his new book as well as engaging in a discussion with artist Thomas Demand that will address his work, career, and publications of the past five decades. The event is co-sponsored with PAC/LA, who will also be providing snacks and refreshments.

The afternoon of October 8th is also the 2016 Culver City Art Walk, so ARCANA expects an enthusiastic turnout! So please RSVP if you're planning to attend. If you are unable to attend and wish to purchase a signed copy of Anthony Hernandez, place your order here - or call 310-458-1499.
