In a historical moment when photography is increasingly central to the way we see and experience the world around us, the Center for Creative Photography welcomes you to reflect with us about Why Photography? In this virtual program, CCP poses this single, fundamental question to members of the photographic community, to explore how photography participates in the expression of who we are.
19th and 20th-century painters, photographers, filmmakers, and geographers created many different methods to represent city life and the everyday. In the 21st century, artists and scientists introduced additional approaches using new types of urban data and sensors (e.g., social media posts, sensor networks, satellite imagery, etc.). Manovich will sketch the evolution of city representation from the 19th century until today and discuss a number of important projects created in the last 15 years.
Join us on Zoom for a conversation with Associate Curator for Academic and Public Programs, Dr. Meg Jackson Fox, and CCP Director and Associate Vice President for the Arts, Anne Breckenridge Barrett. They will discuss the creation of the department in alignment with the CCP strategic action plan, and the critical role and philosophy behind education and engagement activities at the Center.
Join us on Zoom for a conversation with Chief Curator, Dr. Rebecca Senf, and CCP Director and Associate Vice President for the Arts, Anne Breckenridge Barrett. They will build on last year’s collecting plan discussion and share insights on the fine print and archive acquisition process.
McKnight and Sands will discuss the legacy of acclaimed twentieth-century photographer Frederick Sommer and McKnight’s long-standing interest in Sommer’s life and work. The conversation will look at works by both artists and explore a range of overlapping themes and intersections, including: desert modernism, landscape, influence, education, the erotics of formalism, surrealism, sexuality, and the body. There will be a live Q&A at the end of the program where audience members will have an opportunity to contribute questions.
