April 22, 2014 – Stefan Jovanovich – Fashion & Modernism (date change)



Stefan will be speaking to us about Fashion and Modernism and how it pertains to the early 20th century.

 Jovanović is a PhD candidate in Art History in the Département d’histoire de l’art et études cinématographiques at Université de Montréal, where he received a Doctoral Research Fellowship from Fonds québécois de recherche sur la société et la culture (FQRSC).  He is completing a dissertation that deals with questions of subjectivation and ethics in photography theory and criticism.  The thesis compares recent statements on the definition of photography (arguments as to its identity, historicity, referentiality and ideological efficiency) with concurrent claims relating to the ethics of contemporary photography practice and criticism, focusing on several exhibitions of archival, documentary and fine art photography. He has also published a number of essays on the relation of cinema to modern and contemporary art.  His essays and reviews have appeared in Parachute, Offscreen and in the catalogue for the exhibition Timelength (Leonard and Bina Ellen Gallery, 2004).
