A lively debate around the issues of community photography
In conjunction with the current exhibition Jasper, Texas: The Community Photographs of Alonzo Jordan, the International Center of Photography will present a lively debate around the issues of community photography. Guest Curator Alan Govenar, photographer Clarissa Sligh, and filmmaker Thomas Allen Harris convene to discuss the role of community photography in documenting African American social and cultural life and how the vernacular aesthetic has impacted contemporary photography. ICP's chief curator Brian Wallis will moderate the discussion. The free event will take place in the ICP galleries, 1133 Avenue of the Americas at 43rd Street, on Monday, April 25, 2011, at 7 pm.
