Panel in NYC on 2/28: “Documentary Practice From The Printed Page to The Gallery Wall”

ICP, in conjunction with the French Institute Alliance Francaise, present a panel discussion on Thursday, February 28th from 7-9 p.m.

THIS EVENT WILL BE HELD AT FIAF, 22 East 60th Street (between Park and Madison) in NYC.

From the ICP website entry for this event:

“As the gallery wall expands to include more varied genres of photography, what role does photojournalism play? What impact have galleries made in the dissemination of work created in the context of global conflicts or social injustice? Are patrons buying these photographs or is it an act of social activism on the gallery’s part when deeming to show work that is both compelling, yet difficult to hang over a couch? Through this panel discussion with gallery dealers and photographers, we will examine the difficulties and success stories of placing photojournalism in this market place. This program is presented in conjunction with the French Institute Alliance Fran├žaise” 22 East 60th street, which is currently hosting the exhibition “Sarah Caron: Interrance” on view in the FIAF Gallery (through March 5th).

Special guests:Photographers Lori Grinker and Ron Haviv, and Aidan Sullivan, VP, Photo Assignments, Getty Images (North America)
