  • [Profile]

Aaron Van Dyke

holds a Master of Fine Arts(photography)degree from the University of British Colombia and a Master of Arts in Art History from the University of Wisconsin Madison, writing his thesis on the international art scene around the Fluxus art movement and the change from “Modern” to “Postmodern” art that was happening in the late 50s and early 60s. Aaron Van Dyke currently teaches at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and is the Education Coordinator at Midway Contemporary Art, a nonprofit art gallery in Minneapolis. The most recent interests of Van Dyke’s are contemporary photography and new models of education. Photography finds itself in some difficulties today. The rise of digital photography has heightened a crisis in representation and the lack of faith in photography to show us any type of “truth”. The turn to so-called “concrete photography”, usually analog photography made without a lens, has done little to solve this problem. Van Dyke will speak specifically on this subject.
