Critical Focus- The Curatorial Perspective
Sun. Oct. 7th @ 6pm @ Pleasants Family Assembly Room, Wilson Library, UNC campus
When building a colllection or an archive, or mounting a significant exhibition, the curator and archivist sees the big picture. Beyond the single image or single artist, what does a large body of work by many artists have to say to the audience. How a curator factors these decisions into these projects influence the careers of many photographers and effects how the public sees and understands photography.
