5:00-6:30 EST

Handmade Photography Today: A Virtual Artist Talk Series

The Davis Museum continues the Handmade Photography Today artist talk series with a focus on “Portraits of Place.” This spring, we will hear from four acclaimed photographers working in alternative processes: Zohra Opoku (photo processing on textiles), Pushpamala N (tableaux and studio photography), Gerardo Suter (manipulated gelatin silver prints), and David Benjamin Sherry (analog color prints). Each artist’s chosen format inflects the aesthetic, social, and political consequences of their work. In foregrounding material processes in relation to image content, this second part of the Handmade Photography Today series will elaborate themes explored in the fall, while confronting a range of pressing issues related to the role of cultural memories and visual archives in contemporary formations of place.

Free and open to the public; advanced registration required.

Co-hosted with the Photographic Resource Center
Generously sponsored by the Bern Schwartz Family Foundation

May 13, 2021 05:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
