Considerations of Perspective in Visual Art
Juror Talk with David Carter
June 24, 2017, 2:00–3:00 pm

“[Linear perspective] was a creative breakthrough that revolutionized western art, and its pervasive influence is still with us today. But is it correct? Is it merely a technical tool, or does it also reveal purely aesthetic principles? From the beginning, its inventors understood that the apparent correlation between strict perspective theory and human vision was not perfect. So how and why is perspective so relevant to visual art? This talk will briefly explore some of the highlights of perspective’s virtues and inadequacies.”

This talk is free to attend, but we ask that you RSVP on Eventbrite. We hope to see you there!
