The Center for Creative Photography is pleased to co-present the transnational symposium, “Photography and Korea: History and Practice,” with Arizona Arts and the University of Arizona School of Art. To be held online [zoom] between Thursday, February 24 and Saturday, February 26, 2022, this symposium on Korean photography will be the inaugural one for the series of symposia on Asian photography at the University of Arizona, followed by symposia on Taiwanese, Japanese, and Southeast Asian photography. 

“Photography and Korea” explores various ways in which photography has been structuring Korean history and culture, while addressing diverse photographic practices and movements to the global audience. Hosted by a variety of artists, curators, scholars, and directors, the symposium’s panels will be divided into such topics as the history of photography magazines, major photography movements and exhibitions, colonialism, postcolonialism, gender issues, and national identity.
