Luke Batten: Robert Heinecken, Object Matter

Luke Batten, Director of the Robert Heinecken Trust, will discuss the editing of a new monograph published by Riding House detailing Heinecken's artistic output from 1957-1997. The monograph, Robert Heinecken, expands our knowledge of his artistic practice by including several unpublished works from the 1950's and reassembled magazines created in the 1990's. The focus of the discussion will concentrate on Heinecken's penchant for experimenting with photographic processes and materials. Batten is Associate Professor of Photography at the School of Art and Design at the University of Illinois. He received his MFA in photography from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
