Artist Talk: Max Kozloff—The Music of Faces

November 7, 2013
Fullerton Hall
Free with museum admission

Best known as a critic and writer on modern art, Max Kozloff has focused much of his work on photography, a subject he has explored both as a writer and a photographer. He began his career writing the art column for The Nation during the 1960s, and later as contributing editor during the early years of Artforum, culminating in his tenure as executive editor from 1975–77. During those same years, Kozloff took up a camera, and turned increasingly to photography criticism. The Art Institute of Chicago's exhibition surveys Kozloff’s ongoing engagement with words and images, presenting his photographs alongside a reading room of his writings and a collection of works from the museum’s collection by some of the many photographers on whom he has written over the decades.
