Join us for cocktails and a tour of Jim Campbell: Wandering with the artist and Maggie Dethloff, Assistant Curator of Photography and New Media at the Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University.
Maggie Dethloff oversees the Cantor Arts Center’s collections of photography and new media. With a focus on 20th and 21st century American photography, her research is concerned with ways photography, film, and digital media reflect, respond to, and shape discourse around the most pressing issues of our time. She is especially invested in exploring the potential, and potential limits, of photographic and media materials and techniques. Most recently, Maggie curated an installation of new acquisitions to the Cantor’s collection of contemporary landscape photography and coordinated the Cantor’s presentation of the traveling exhibition When Home Won’t Let You Stay: Migration Through Contemporary Art. Maggie holds a PhD in Visual Studies from University of California, Irvine and is the author of the exhibition catalogue PHOTOdocument: Twentieth-Century American Photography and Found Text.
