Symposium: Beyond Vision: Art, Photography and Science / 12 September 2015

Early scientific ‘photographs of the invisible’ — from x-ray to photomicrography, motion studies to pictures of electrical charges — have had a profound effect on the development of modern and contemporary art.  Bringing together world-renowned artists, curators and academics, and coinciding with the final days of Revelations: Experiments in Photography, this one-day symposium examines the importance of early scientific photography for the creative arts and the ways in which its meanings have shifted across time and space.

Speakers include:

  • John Blakinger, Stanford University / National Gallery of Art, Washington DC
  • Marta Braun, Ryerson University
  • Ben Burbridge, University of Sussex / co-curator Revelations
  • Ori Gersht, artist
  • Marek Kukula, Royal Observatory Greenwich
  • Corey Keller, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
  • Sarah Pickering, artist
  • Kelley Wilder, De Montfort University  

Panels will be chaired by: Greg Hobson (National Media Museum / co-curator Revelations); David Alan Mellor (University of Sussex); and Sean O’Hagan (The Guardian).

Organised in collaboration with the Centre for the Visual, University of Sussex.
