For the upcoming session we have invited artists Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin, Anna Ostoya, and Lisa Oppenheim, featured in this year’s New Photography exhibition (on view at MoMA, September 14, 2013–January 6, 2014); and scholars Tom McDonough, Associate Professor and Chair of Art History at Binghamton University, State University of New York; and Andrés Mario Zervigón, Associate Professor of the History of Photography at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, to lead a discussion about the idea of photocollage/montage and the political and aesthetic impact this art form has had in the early decades of the 21st century. This session addresses the ways in which artists making use of photocollage/montage through analogue, photogram, and digital techniques have reevaluated this historic breakthrough from a present-day perspective.
This event is invitation only, but we are very pleased to [live-stream this forum](a href="http://www.livestream.com/museummodernart"), which will allow remote friends and colleagues to participate in the conversation.
Cofounded by curators Roxana Marcoci and Eva Respini on February 16, 2010, and conceived as an experimental platform for free-form critical discussions, MoMA’s forums on contemporary photography are designed to encourage debate about the perspectives and scope of still and moving images and other forms of picture-making among leading artists, curators, and theorists in the field. The creative process of today is not solitary but dynamic, evolving from countless partnerships. These forums offer an intellectual milieu that values the scholarly reassessment of pivotal ideas in art, innovative practices, and complex and competing visions of modern and contemporary art.
Roxana Marcoci, The David Dechman Senior Curator, The Robert B. Menschel Department of Photography, MoMA, begins each session with an introduction to the topic, providing context for the conversation. Four to seven featured speakers then present for five to 10 minutes each. The presentations are followed by a probing, critical Q&A session and a moderated discussion with all the guests.
