Extinct Photography 

Art Stories: Tales from the Local Art World


Listen as some of our cities' most interesting artists give us the back stories about their work in this series of on-stage narratives. 

In 2011, the MIA commissioned photographer Lacey Prpic Hedtke to document the museum's collection using archaic photographic techniques, such as tintypes, collotypes, and stereograms. She commenced upon an intensive exploration of history, representation, and visual interpretation, resulting in a kind of photographic archaeology that unearthed new connections and fresh interpretations of familiar artworks.

Prpic Hedtke will discuss this project, the history of photography, and how she decided to pair certain art works with particular archaic photographic techniques.
The Art Cart will be out so you can hold a tintype or look at a 3D stereoscope picture. And we'll look at new daguerreotypes!

$10; $5 for MIA members. To reserve tickets, call (612) 870-6323 or reserve tickets online.
