Vesna Pavlović’s Lost Art: Photography, Display, and the Archive is the first volume to focus on the Serbian-American photographer Vesna Pavlović. Published by Hanes Art Gallery at Wake Forest University and designed by Stephanie Sauer of artlyrics, the book contextualizes Pavlović’s photographs and installations in relationship to art history, the legacy of the Cold War in Eastern Europe, and contemporary display practices. Pavlović’s work mines history and personal experience to ask the viewer to consider both the utopian impulses and, at times, empty pageantry of sites of display. Her work draws upon a cinematic sense of mise-en-scene in a way that encourages us to question photography’s perceived “truth.” This consideration of the nature of the photographic image, or, in her words, “the photographic moment,” also allows her to explore related questions of memory and representation.

Remarks will be made by Rebecca Cummins (Professor of Photomedia, UW School of Art + Art History + Design) and Vesna Pavlović (Associate Professor of Art, Vanderbilt University).
