Keynote Speaker: Gregory Crewdson

"Trail Log: The Making of Cathedral of the Pines"

Thursday, March 10 - 7:00PM to 8:30PM
Summerlin Ballroom

Gregory Crewdson will give an overview of his career as an artist, with a focus on his newest body of work, "Cathedral of the Pines." Crewdson's photographs are elaborately staged and shot with a heightened attention to detail. He works with a large crew, similar to that of a feature film, and uses cinematic lighting and effects to evoke a story in a single image. His process has evolved through each successive series, shifting both technically and aesthetically. "Cathedral of the Pines" is quieter, more intimate, and less theatrical than much of his previous work, and he considers the pictures in the series his most personal to date. He will discuss this artistic progression, as well as his influences, inspirations, and intentions as an artist and storyteller.
