THE EXHIBITION AS MEDIUM
Organised by David CAMPANY
Saturday 10 November

AUDITORIUM - LEVEL 1

Photographic artists often look beyond the single image to the body of work – the set, the suite, the series, the album the archive and the typology. In recent years many have extended this idea even further, into the gallery space, turning the exhibition itself into their medium. Various modes of presentation and display combine with three-dimensional scenographic practices to produce photographic environments of different kinds. In this way, the photograph itself is only on part of how they understand their work. At the same time, progressive museums and galleries have developed innovative strategies for presenting photographic material. The exhibition is one of the most experimental areas of photographic culture today. This day of talks and conversations, curated by David Campany, writer and curator, brings together a number of number of artists, curators and scholars who have been at the forefront of this revolution in photographic presentation.
