A Conversation with Brooklyn Public Library's First Artist-in-Residence, Elizabeth Felicella -- Wednesday, October 30th, 7pm

Oct 23, 2013 12:37 PM | 0 comments

Elizabeth Felicella will discuss her work as an architectural photographer with Brooklyn Collection archivists Ben Gocker and Ivy Marvel, with special attention to how it relates to her photographs of the library archive that are included in the current exhibition, Brooklyn Public Library: An Open Book. An archive is typically deemed a repository of the past, compiled for the sake of posterity, the future; this public conversation, which is grounded in the collaborative relationship between photographer and archivist that has developed during Felicella’s time as Artist-in-Residence at the Brooklyn Public Library, presents an opportunity to consider the archive in the present tense and as an open, active endeavor.

A wine and cheese reception, as well as distribution of tickets, will precede the event at 6:30 p.m. The Brooklyn Collection is located on the 2nd floor balcony of the Central Library at Grand Army Plaza. Seating is limited to 40.
