27 Mar - Photography in Contemporary Art with Matthew Stephenson & Clare Grafik
Ever since its invention in the early 19th century, photography has beguiled viewers but as technology, ease, availability to all has evolved, so have artists’ use of the medium. This talk will examine contemporary artists who use photography in their practice– offering an overview of key movements and delving into the practice of select artists. The speakers will also look closely at practical concerns of collecting photography, from conservation issues to understating editions, reprints and more.
