tonight: finding photography panel at the new museum

Finding Photography
New Museum
Thursday Jan 13, 2011
7:00 PM
$8 general public, free to members

Organized and moderated by Matt Keegan, featuring Tim Barber, Roe Etheridge, Mary Manning, and Laurel Ptak.

This conversation with notable photographers and founders of websites, such as Tiny Vices, I Heart Photograph, and Unchanging Windows, explore how the web not only affects the discovery of new photography, but also its distribution, interpretation, and creation. With an emphasis on images and short text publishing encouraged by popular platforms like Tumblr, does photography lose depth? Does the continual circulation and re-presentation of photographs affect the work, itself? Is photography more resilient to change because we live in an image-saturated culture? Panelists present their projects and discuss these questions and more through audience Q&A.
