Practice new ways of engaging with photographs in this art-making workshop inspired by Tina Campt’s Listening to Images. In this book, Campt “looks beyond what one usually sees” and explores a way of listening closely to photography, engaging with lost archives of historically dismissed photographs of black subjects taken throughout the black diaspora.
Participants are encouraged to bring and discuss personal photographs, inviting others to interpret alternative meanings. Art-making supplies will be provided.
This edition of Studio Salon is organized on the occasion of Future Continuous, a collaborative installation featuring work by multidisciplinary artist Kambui Olujimi and street photographer Andre D. Wagner.
