Photography Is Magic Panel at EXPO CHICAGO

Saturday, September 19

11:30 am

EXPO CHICAGO Navy Pier Chicago, IL


This panel will feature artists John Houck, Matt Lipps, Phillip Maisel, and Kate Steciw in conversation with writer and curator Charlotte Cotton on her book Photography Is Magic (Aperture, 2015), in which their work is included. This critical book surveys the practices of over eighty artists engaged with experimental approaches to photographic ideas. Set within a contemporary image environment shaped by online interaction, the more-than-three-hundred-image sequence represents the scope of photographic possibilities at play within contemporary creative practices—and how artists are consciously reframing photographic practices in the post-Internet age.

Aperture Foundation will have a booth at EXPO CHICAGO as part of the Special Exhibitions program.
