Command-P: Collaborating with the Internet

Ana Samoylova

Friday, March 07 - 10:00AM to 10:45AM
Holiday 1

A new generation of artists, whose photographic practice revolves around Internet-sourced images, grew up not only in a physical reality notoriously oversaturated with photographs, but also spent a significant part of their lives on the Web, with its pervasiveness of largely anonymous digital imagery. Kate Steciw, Daniel Gordon, and Jon Rafman, are among the contemporary artists that engage in cultural dialogue by repurposing and recontextualizing images readily available online. This lecture will investigate the dichotomy between the singular authorship and cultural collaboration, and focus on work that challenges and expands the definition of photography in the age of the Internet.
