The Projected Image Panel at The New School Moderated by George Baker featuring photographers Andrea Geyer, Paul Pfeiffer, and Krzysztof WodiczkoTuesday, December 8th, 2009
This Thursday at Aperture Gallery, The Projected Image, part of the tenth season of the series Confounding Expectations: Photography in Context will explore the multiple ways in which contemporary artists have utilized projection and installation strategies to display still photographic images, creating immersive and cinema-like experiences in museum and gallery environments. Departing from the large-scale, tableau treatments of the photographic image printed and framed as wall-based objects, exemplified in works by Jeff Wall, Andreas Gursky, and Gregory Crewdson, in recent years contemporary artists have increasingly employed projection devices—ranging from analogue to digital high-definition—to display photographic images as immaterial light projections, often incorporating temporal and audiovisual elements that recall cinematic contexts yet retain distinctly photographic qualities. This panel discussion, moderated by George Baker, associate professor of art history, UCLA; panelists includes photographers Andrea Geyer, Paul Pfeiffer, and Krzysztof Wodiczko.
