Capture Speaker Series “Writing with Light”: Liking vs. Critiquing
April 26, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
It has been said that art criticism is dead. Is the expanded arena of platforms—from the early days of Flickr to the current dominance of Instagram— altering the boundaries of art criticism? Have accessibility and immediacy led to uniformity and ‘sameness’ in the images being created today? How is discourse shaped by platform design and mandates? These and other questions are taken up by art critic and professor Clint Burnham; artist Sylvia Grace Borda, who often utilizes Google Street View; and popular landscape Instagrammer Maurice Li.
Admission is free of charge.
The Speaker Series is a co-presentation between Capture Photography Festival and Inform Interiors. The 2016 edition entitled “Writing with Light” brings luminary artists, curators, and researchers together to discuss how lens-based technology is transforming culture.
