Panelist, Bending the Frame: Where Do We Go From Here?
Moderated by Fred Ritchin, with Jennifer Karady, Bayeté Ross Smith, Celia A. Shapiro, and Benjamin Petit of #Dysturb.
How can we as artists, documentarians, and activists use visual imagery in alternative ways so as to have an impact on a society that is increasingly submerged by—and immune to—imagery of all kinds? This panel discussion, in conjunction with the exhibition "Bending the Frame" at the Gulf & Western Gallery of the Tisch School of the Arts, provides a platform for individuals working on critical social issues to explain their strategies as image-makers, and the ways in which they have managed, in an era of "fake news" and "alternative truths," to make a difference in people's lives.
