On Thursday, March 10, at 2:30 pm in the Regis Room of the Student Center, Elizabeth Legge, PhD, professor of modern art at the University of Toronto, will give a lecture entitled, “Superfaciality: The Ethics of Taking Photographs in a Mirror.”

Legge will be covering  Michael Snow’s Authorization (1969), which is a series of five Polaroid photographs taken in a mirror and mounted on the mirror in which they were taken. It is a specimen and test case for a number of claims being made for conceptual photography, and for the nature of the artist, at the time.
