Past Event Tate Modern Talk and Lecture

Performing photographs: Photography, performance and affect

19 March 2014 at 18.30–20.30

Resurgence in interest around photography’s relationship to performance has increased the awareness of the photograph both as documentation and as a performative work in itself. Recent international exhibitions have explored photography’s relationship to ‘performance’ and the differing ways that artists have used the camera in this arena. Performing photographs looks at how the performative is located within the photograph itself, and in the relationship of the image to the viewer, as well as photography’s relationship to the written and spoken word.

Speakers include LaToya Ruby Frazier, Carol Mavor, Olivier Richon and chaired by Catherine Grant.

This event is related to the Performing Photographs seminar.
