Agnieszka Whelan to discuss “Dazzle Ships”

Lecturer in Art History Dr. Agnieszka Whelan will discuss Dazzle Ships, a photography exhibition by Polish artist Lukasz Wierzbowski on Thursday, March 13, 7:30pm at Nobile & Amundsen in Norfolk. Wierzbowski has exhibited his works in galleries across four continents, his photographs have been published in lifestyle magazines and art zines, and he’s shared an incredible amount of images on Flickr and Tumblr. His clients include Penguin Books, Saatchi and Saatchi, and Urban Outfitters. And yet, in this world of international and electronic coverage, Wierzbowski relies on two unlikely, traditional constants: his analogue camera and the wealth of artistic references with which he grew up in his native country. Dr. Whelan will talk about Wierzbowski’s visual connections to the artists of Europe and the United States, and particularly to developments in Poland today.
