Thinking Through Photographs Topic 3: Listening to Photographs
Topic 3: Listening to Photographs
Wednesday, October 28th, 5:30pm EST
Facilitator: Dawit Petros
Our third meeting will use texts by Tina M. Campt, Listening to Images, (2017) and Allan Sekula, The Body and the Archive, (1986) as a basis to explore a new way of attending to the information photographs possess - by listening.
Thinking through Photographs was originally developed as an in-person exhibition by Liz Park, University at Buffalo Art Galleries curator, and now takes the form of a downloadable resource binder of texts which consider photography’s complexities through eight different topics. Using the resource binder as a jumping off point, this free virtual reading group will meet regularly for eight sessions, covering one topic each meeting. A rotating group of guest artists, curators and writers will facilitate each meeting, bringing their own perspectives, specialties and selection of images for consideration along with the texts.
