The Myths and Realities of Artistic Collaborations presents Wig Heavier than a Boot, a project by Photographer David Johnson and Poet Philip Matthews and Fade Like a Sigh, by Photographers Rana Young and Zora J Murff. During this presentation, both collaborative duos will discuss their projects' concepts, how they established the collaborative endeavor and how they learned to build consensus and problem solve together. The panelists will provide keen insights on the most effective strategy for collaborations and a few suggestions on what not to do when working with someone else, from the idea to exhibition.
Patti Hallock, "What is Blockchain and what does it have to do with Photography?" (Teaching & Learning)
An introductory talk for photographers about a technology called Blockchain (often associated with the cryptocurrency, Bitcoin). Blockchain presents new opportunities for democratizing control over all sorts of products both digital and physical and the art world is paying attention! Hallock will describe what Blockchain is, how it's being used in the art world and what the potential pitfalls are as things stand today. This technology has the potential to help photographers provide ownership certification, museum quality provenance tracking and control over the copyright, licensing and usage of your artwork in the physical and digital realm.
