2019 SPESE: Double-sided
This Conference is About Photography Books
Graduate Hotel, Richmond - Richmond, VA |
October 17 - October 20, 2019
With the rise of self publishing, installation, performance, and expanded approaches to the photo book, SPESE 2019 invites you to Richmond, VA where VCUarts and the Departments of Art & Art History at William & Mary and the University of Richmond will explore Photography off the wall – disseminated and transmitted by gatekeepers and DIY'ers, through actual and virtual networked communities. Topics of exploration include the nature of research and image circulation; collectives and special collections; working with designers, writers and text; the book as object and event, and most importantly, empowering our students to move the conversation around Photography Books forward for the next generation of artists, educators, consumers and producers.
CALL FOR PROPOSALS: You are invited to submit proposals for artist talks, lectures, or panels (45 min block) or creative, technical or pedagogical workshops (90-120 min. block). Please limit your proposals to 300 words. Please submit with a CV and up to ten images, and compress all info into a single PDF. Submit to SPESE2019@gmail.com with "SPESE Conference Proposal" in the subject line. DEADLINE June 1, 2019
