Ivan Pinkava is a leading contemporary Czech photographer who has created his own visual language. In his work, Pinkava aims to enter familiar iconographical situations of Western culture in order to – some slightly, some radically – alter, rearrange, rename, empty, cloak or show them in a different light. Behind historical scenes, he finds something relevant and common to both today and the future – human insecurity streaming from one’s own physical impermanence. Experience the work of Pinkava at the Katzen Arts Center in the American University Museum, which will host a Gallery Talk with the photographer on November 3 at 5 pm and opening reception following the talk from 6-9 pm. The exhibition runs until December 16, 2012. Admission is free. For more information about Ivan Pinkava, visit www.ivanpinkava.com.
