About: Arpad Kovacs and Anne Martens

Anne Martens That's perhaps why I'm an artist and journalist. I combine both of those interests at the Museum as a writer for Collection Information & Access—collaborating on projects that range from producing audio and videos to animation and interactive media about collection-related exhibitions and works of art. Arpad Kovacs I'm an assistant curator in the Department of Photographs at the J. Paul Getty Museum. My research interests focus on 20th-century American and Eastern European photography and contemporary lens-based media.

“I think he sees Hearsay of the Soul as a poem, and doesn’t want to make a documentary—that was a very deliberate choice. It feels very personal, and that’s what makes it interesting.” More»
