About the Exhibition
Radial Survey is a biennial exhibition of the preeminent emerging and mid-career photo based artists working within 300 miles of Pittsburgh. Our goal is to highlight work and support artists from places that are sometimes overlooked in the national photography conversation. Our curatorial team has selected eight significant artists with diverse practices, whose work engages with this region, its communities, and histories.
The Radial Survey Symposium seeks to create a collegial environment of spirited conversation and debate around the issues and themes of the exhibition among all of the symposium participants. The participants include exhibiting artists, Radial Survey curators, guest moderators as well scholars, artists, and photography lovers from around the Radial Survey region. To help facilitate meaningful conversation the symposium will be capped at 35 participants. Short presentations by each panelist will be followed by a free form conversation open to all the participants.
