Converging Lenses

Issues in Contemporary Photography


Thursday, April 23, 2015
6:30 – 8 pm
Scheuer Auditorium

Over the last ten years, approaches to using photography have changed drastically in reaction to new digital imaging technologies and the proliferation of images on the Internet. This panel featuring artists Lucas Blalock, Talia Chetrit, and Barbara Kasten will discuss both interventions in the medium by younger artists and the renewed focus on the work of artists who laid the foundations for photography’s current moment.

Moderated by Chris Wiley, Adjunct Professor at New York University and contributing editor at Frieze.

Free with Pay-What-You-Wish Admission; RSVP Recommended
