International Colloquium

International Colloquium "À partir d'aujourd'hui ... Reconsidering Postphotography"

20151001

20151003

Free entry. Registration recommended.

REGISTER HERE

Download the colloquium program here >>>

Inspired by curator Joan Fontcuberta’s theme for the 2015 MPM biennial, The Post-Photographic Condition, the partnership’s scientific committee has identified three axes of research. The first is memory, and how the digital revolution shapes the collective identity of youth and the imaginations of artists. The second is historiography, and how ‘thinking photography’ in the digital age causes us to re-examine whole categories of images that photography history has ignored. The third is truth, and how the post-photographic era has impacted on photography as a source of verifiable knowledge. Nine invited scholars will give papers and form panels to discuss these issues. Other issues will be raised in a graduate student session organized by and for doctoral and postdoctoral students.

Three keynote speakers – Quentin Bajac, The Joel and Anne Ehrenkranz Chief Curator, Department of Photography, New York Museum of Modern Art; Joanna Sassoon, Tutor and Adjunct Senior Lecturer at the School of Computing and Information Sciences, Edith Cowan University in Perth, Australia; and Vanessa Schwartz, Professor of History and Director, Visual Studies Research Institute, University of Southern California in Los Angeles, United States – will bridge and complicate the conference themes.

Support for this event has been generously provided by the Aid to Research Related Events (ARRE) program of the Office of Research, CU; the Faculty of Fine Arts, CU; the Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Institute for Studies in Canadian Art, CU; Speaking of Photography, CU; the Australia Council for the Arts; the Canadian Centre for Architecture; Figura, Centre de recherche sur le texte et l’imaginaire, UQAM and Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal and.
