Photographic Activities: A Salon
This program brings together seven artists in the 2019 Whitney Biennial who work with the medium and activity of photography. Following brief presentations, the artists discuss how and why they continue to use—and reinvent—photography today. They consider different approaches to the medium in light of the proliferation of photographic technologies, the digital and physical spaces in which photographs exist, and how artists make interventions within the field. Speakers include Lucas Blalock, John Edmonds, Todd Gray, Curran Hatleberg, Elle Pérez, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, and Heji Shin.
