Samira’s Presentation: Influences, Artists


Lorie Novak

Lorie Novak is an artist and Professor of Photography & Imaging at NYU Tisch School of the Arts and Associate Faculty at the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics. She uses various technologies of representation to explore issues of memory and transmission, identity and loss, presence and absence, shifting cultural meanings of photographs, and the relationship between the intimate and the public.


Her Web project, 1996-present, exploring how family photographs shape our memory was one of the earliest interactive storytelling sites.

Gerhard Richter

Gerhard Richter, (born 9 February 1932), is a German visual artist. Richter has simultaneously produced abstract and photorealistic painted works, as well as photographs and glass pieces. His art follows the examples of Picasso and Jean Arp in undermining the concept of the artist’s obligation to maintain a single cohesive style. Richter is regarded as the top-selling living artist. In October 2012, Richter’s Abstraktes Bild set an auction record price for a painting by a living artist at £21 million ($34 million). This was exceeded in May 2013 when his 1968 piece Domplatz, Mailand (Cathedral square, Milan) was sold for $37.1 million (£24.4 million) in New York.
