Documenting Anarchy: Matthew Conboy & Dylan Vitone
Join Fellowship 15 Keystone Award winner Matthew Conboy and artist Dylan Vitone for an in-depth conversation about their photo-based documentary projects on the notorious 88-acre skate park and anarchist commune Skatopia. Located in southeast Ohio, Skatopia has become infamous for its world class skateboarding, music, and raucous parties. Conboy’s photographs, currently on view at Silver Eye, bring a sense of serenity to the chaos, often photographing the skaters and landscape in quiet moments. Vitone, on the other hand, captures the reckless energy of Skatopia using virtual and printed panoramic photographs that capture affecting details in the revelry. In conversation, the artists will share their work and processes and discuss different approaches to making images of this unique community.
Talk will begin promptly at 7:00 pm.
This event is free and open to the public.
