Framing Injustice: The Photography Exhibition as Political Act

Friday, October 07 - 1:00PM to 1:50PM
Lindell Ballroom - Chase Park Plaza

This talk will highlight the important role documentary and citizen photographs play in revealing the unseen, the obscured, or the avoided in society, and the ways in which they function as the photographer’s testament to injustice. It will further propose that exhibiting photographs of this nature is a political act meant to create a public space for people to converge, reflect, and galvanize around the information the images have uncovered.

Please be advised that this presentation will include some graphic imagery.

Webster University’s Department of Art, Design and Art History is sponsoring this lecture
