DANA LIXENBERG IN CONVERSATION WITH MAGDA KEANEY AT THE NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY

For our annual Photo London keynote, we are pleased to announce Dutch documentary photographer Dana Lixenberg (Amsterdam, 1964). She will join Magda Keaney, Senior Curator, Photographs, to discuss her recently exhibited series American Images, which comprises a selection of portraits of American icons who have been instrumental in shaping today’s popular culture. Many of these portraits were commissioned in the 1990s and early 2000s by the legendary photography editor, artist and educator George Pitts for the influential music magazine Vibe, during his tenure at the magazine, which helped jumpstart Lixenberg’s editorial career. The conversation will focus on the dynamic in Lixenberg’s work between personal documentary projects, celebrity portraits and other commissioned work. There will an opportunity for questions.
