16oct1:00 pmAN: Trading Notes: Modern Man: Appraising the Work of Julius Shulman

Virtual Accustics


Event Details

Fashion comes and goes, values change, yet images remain. Photographer Julius Shulman, who would have turned 110 on October 10, furnished the visual materials with which to shape our expectations of the modern world. Even now, when contemplating “the good life” we imagine a modernist perch in the Hollywood Hills or a desert house in Palm Springs, as lensed by Shulman. His contribution to the enduring California mythos is beautifully told in Eric Bricker’s 2009 film Visual Acoustics, newly released on Blu-Ray with a commemorative 164-page hardbound book.

To mark the release, The Architect’s Newspaper is screening Bricker’s film over October 9–12 and 16–19. And on October 16, AN will host a special panel discussion between the filmmaker, Mark Lee of Johnston Marklee, and Kelly McLeod of Kelly Sutherlin McLeod Architecture. The talk will aim to locate the relevance of Shulman’s work at a time of greater inclusivity. Don’t miss it!

Tickets are available for purchase at the following registration link, with a part of the proceeds going to California Preservation Foundation. Registrants will receive confirmation by email, with a link to the screening.
