Over the last ten years, approaches to using photography have changed drastically in reaction to new digital imaging technologies and the proliferation of images on the Internet. This panel discussion will focus on interventions in the medium by younger artists such as Lucas Blalock and Talia Chetrit, and how this trend has placed renewed focus on the work of artists, like Barbara Kasten, who laid the foundations for photography’s current moment. Moderated by Chris Wiley, Adjunct Professor at New York University and contributing editor at Frieze.
