A panel of distinguished artists and scholars will explore the conflicts and concurrences that shaped the modern photographic image at a free, public symposium Saturday, March 2 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Sheldon Museum Art.
Presenters will examine photography through the lens of transnationalism—its cultural and national boundaries, reinforcement and subversion of gender and identity, and engagements between art and science, craft and technology.
The panel includes Zeynep Çelik, professor, College of Architecture and Design, New Jersey Institute of Technology; Renée Cox, artist and photographer; Keith Davis, senior curator of photography, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art; Janet Farber, director of the Phillip Schrager Collection of Contemporary Art; Dana Fritz, photographer and professor, Department of Art and Art History, UNL; Toby Jurovics, chief curator of American western art, Joslyn Art Museum; Brandon Ruud, curator of transnational American art, and Jorge Daniel Veneciano, director, Sheldon Museum of Art.
The symposium is in conjunction with the exhibition “Encounters: Photography from the Sheldon Museum of Art” at Sheldon through April 28.
Symposium and exhibition funding from the Hixson-Lied Endowment with additional exhibition support provided by the Ethel S. Abbott Charitable Foundation. Catalog support provided by the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation.
