This forum examines the role of pedagogy in the context of Stephen Shore’s work. The session is conceived in conjunction with the major exhibition Stephen Shore, on view at The Museum of Modern Art November 19, 2017–May 28, 2018, covering five decades of the artist’s career. Shore is known for his restless interrogation of image making, from the gelatin silver prints he made as a teenager, to his pioneering use of color, to his current engagement with digital platforms. Considered one of the most significant photographers of our time, Shore is also a longstanding teacher and mentor. The featured forum speakers are artists Lucas Blalock, Tim Davis, Shannon Ebner, Stephen Shore, and Xaviera Simmons; and Quentin Bajac, The Joel and Anne Ehrenkranz Chief Curator of Photography and curator of the exhibition.

This event is invitation only, but we are very pleased to present a recording of the forum, which will allow remote friends and colleagues to hear the conversation.

Established on February 16, 2010, and conceived as an experimental platform for free-form critical discussions, these forums are designed to encourage debate about the perspectives and scope of contemporary photography among leading artists, curators, and theorists in the field.

This event is part of Forums on Contemporary Photography.
