A one-day symposium on "How the 19th-century Is the Basis for All Subsequent Photographic Art" will be held on Oct. 20th. This special program will feature a panel session with top contemporary artists discussing how 19th-century photography and its processes have influenced their work, and presentations by curators and collectors on why they include 19th-century photography along with modern photography in their collections.
Sarah Greenough from the National Gallery of Art will moderate the lead-off panel of top artists, including Vera Lutter, Adam Fuss, Jerry Spagnoli and Sally Mann.
Other sessions will include Denise Bethel speaking on this topic and how collectors and curators should respond, and interviews with several of the world's top photography collectors, including Michael Mattis and Judy Hochberg, and others.
Symposium attendees are also welcome to join conference attendees at the Grand Reception that evening. Their badges will also get them into the 19th-century Photography Show on Saturday.
Howard Greenberg Gallery will also have a coordinated special exhibit of contemporary art using antiquarian photography methods, curated by Jerry Spagnoli. A reception at the gallery is planned for Friday night, Oct. 21st.
