Convening: A Critical Dialogue on the History and Future of Media Arts

Convening fosters an open dialogue among media artists, scholars and activists on media born artistic practices. It will explore the innovative practices and critical perspectives of photographers, filmmakers, printmakers and writers drawn from the long and dynamic history of media and art, through themes of history, representation, evidence, the archive, image making, identity, practice and presence. The program will feature keynote speakers and panel discussions organized by leading practitioners and moderated by noted photographer Sean Alonzo Harris.

Convening will be accompanied by a 6 week series of lectures that will compose  a more complete picture of media arts and its practitioners, tracing the rich but often overlooked histories of visual and literary artists and storytellers. The series will be led by scholar C. Daniel Dawson and will feature appearances by artists, image makers and scholars. As with the symposium itself, this series will be free and open to the public. Space will be limited.

Panelists include Charles Daniel DawsonLola FlashWendy Red StarMiriam RomaisHồng-Ân Trương, and Deborah Willis.
