Master Class: Where are we going?: The Photograph in Contemporary Art
Through presentations, course readings and critiques, this studio workshop in photography will examine strategies photographers and artists working in photography use to accept, negate, refuse, reject, interrogate, subvert, rewrite and complicate the "documentary" nature of the medium and its role in contemporary art and society. Students are expected to work independently and to set their own studio goals for the week. Photography is an intersectional medium. The course strongly encourages a broad interpretation of photography and welcomes artists working with installation. This course will stress the importance of an open ended approach in working with the photographic medium across genres and styles. Portfolios will be accepted on a rolling basis. Instructions on how to submit your portfolio are as follows: Submit digital images of your work in one single PDF (as opposed to individual JPG attachments) via email directly to Anderson Ranch Workshop Manager Esther Nooner at firstname.lastname@example.org The single PDF must be less than 10 MB to be considered. Include 5-10 images of your work with image identification that lists the title, media, dimensions and year of each image. While not required, it is helpful to see an artist statement addressing the images you send. Include “Advanced Portfolio Review” in the subject line of your email, as well as the title of the workshop for which you are applying. Please provide a phone number where you can be reached and a link to your website. Submissions that do not follow the requested directions will not be reviewed. If you are accepted, a deposit of $650 will be required within one week of notification of acceptance to hold your place. Housing will be assigned on a space-available basis upon enrollment.
