Talking About Lotte

Talking About Lotte

This talk will feature the recollections of guest curator Gary Samson, with historical commentary presented by Hyewon Yoon, Lecturer in Art and Art History, University of New Hampshire. The talk will be moderated by Janet Polasky, Presidential Professor of History at the University of New Hampshire. It will take place from 4:00-6:00pm in the Special Collections Reading Room, Dimond Library, Room 101. The snow date is Wednesday, February 27, 2019, same time and location.

The Jacobi exhibit is scheduled to run with the UNH Museum of Art exhibition entitled Yoav Horesh: Aftermath, which also opens from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. on January 24, 2019. The public is invited to both events.

Drawn from the University’s extensive Jacobi archive, the exhibit features photographs taken by Jacobi after she left Germany and emigrated to America in 1935. Jacobi continued her craft in exile, first in New York, with her portraiture, cityscapes, and abstract photogenics over a period of twenty years. After making portraits of the nation’s creative and intellectual giants including Albert Einstein, Thomas Mann, Theodore Dreiser, Eleanor Roosevelt, Marc Chagall and J.D. Salinger, she moved to New Hampshire in the mid 50s, where her photographs often captured rural life; nevertheless, she continued to make portraits of creative luminaries such as Robert Frost, Edward Steichen, May Sarton, and Minor White, among others.
