Conceived as an experimental platform for free-form, critical discussions, these forums are designed to engage in debates about the perspectives and scope of contemporary photography with leading artists, curators, and theorists in the field.
The structure of the forums has been continually evolving: for the upcoming session artists Gregory Crewdson, Director, Graduate Studies in Photography, Yale University; Ashley Hunt, Co-Director, Program in Photography and Media Faculty, CalArts; Stephen Shore, Director, Photography Program, Bard College; and James Welling, Chair, Photography Department, University of California, Los Angeles, lead a discussion about the mission, vision, and philosophy of their respective photography programs.
The MoMA Forum on Contemporary Photography is organized by Roxana Marcoci, Curator; Sarah Meister, Curator; and Eva Respini, Associate Curator
The Forum on Contemporary Photography is made possible by MoMA's Wallis Annenberg Fund for Innovation in Contemporary Art through the Annenberg Foundation.
This event is invitation only, but we are very pleased to live-stream this forum, which will, for the first time, allow remote friends and colleagues to participate in the conversation.
