Gallery Sessions are creative exploratory experiences facilitated by Museum educators that allow visitors a unique perspective on works in the galleries, art history, and the creative process. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the daily schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.

Sign language–interpreted Gallery Sessions are held every fourth Sunday of the month at 1:30 p.m. FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.

MoMA Forum on Contemporary Photography

Wednesday, October 22, 2014, 6:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m.
View Detail

Conceived as an experimental platform for free-form critical discussions, the Forums are designed to encourage debate about the scope and perspectives of contemporary photography among leading artists, curators, and theorists in the field.

For the upcoming session we have invited Karen Archey, independent curator and writer; Lauren Cornell, Curator, New Museum; Lev Manovich, Professor, Computer Science, The Graduate Center, City University of New York; and Artie Vierkant, artist, to lead a discussion about "post-Internet" art and how it relates to new forms of image-making, dissemination, networking, and branding aesthetics. Some of the questions we will ask include: How do you define post-Internet art? How do post-Internet artistic strategies affect how we think about, receive, and participate in image production and distribution today? What's changed in the field of image making since "post-Internet" emerged as a term in the last decade? This session will address the ways in which expanded ideas about the photographic medium and the circulation of images resonate in the 21st century.

This event is invitation-only, but we are very pleased to present a live stream of the forum, which will allow remote friends and colleagues to participate in the conversation.

The MoMA Forums on Contemporary Photography are organized by Roxana Marcoci, Senior Curator, and Eva Respini, Curator, Department of Photography.

The MoMA Forums on Contemporary Photography are made possible by MoMA's Wallis Annenberg Fund for Innovation in Contemporary Art through the Annenberg Foundation.
