Kate Palmer Albers: "Abundant Images"

Friday, March 08 - 3:00PM to 3:45PM
State Ballroom

Recent projects by artists such as Erik Kessels and Penelope Umbrico indicate a profound shift in how we make, share, and consume photographic images, with their decisive emphasis on the accumulative and abundant tendencies of the digital age. I will focus on the issue of volume in the photographic archive and the intellectual and organizational structures through which we make meaning from such volume. This area of inquiry moves away from an emphasis on the singular photographic fine print, and begins with the assumption that abundance and accumulation can be their own productive subjects of aesthetic inquiry, highly relevant to contemporary experience.
