The symposium will be held at the National Museum Cardiff. This one-day symposium explores questions around ‘The Photograph' and the status and meaning of the photographic object in visual culture. The keynote speech by internationally renowned artist Richard Wentworth will be followed by three panel sessions — Create, Curate and Collect — chaired by Professor Mark Durden (University of Wales Newport), Lisa Le Feuvre (Henry Moore Institute) and Christiane Monarchi (Photomonitor). We invite the audience to explore with our speakers current trends in collecting photography, new contexts for curating the photographic image and the conundrum of photography's ambiguous place in contemporary art. This event is part of Diffusion: Cardiff International Festival of Photography 1 - 31 May 2013. Link for more information: Booking link:
