Photography: The Index - April 28th at Louisiana ArtWorks

From the Louisiana ArtWorks:

Dear Artists and Arts Enthusiasts,

Join us on Tuesday, April 28th at 7 PM for "Photography: The Index", the April meeting of our "Art Sessions: A Series of Discussions on Visual Contemporary Art" panel series. The photograph literally reflects its subject, inscribing its trace onto a light-sensitive surface. This fact forms a unique connection between the photograph and that which it describes. This panel considers the indexical nature of photography by looking at contemporary projects in a discussion with photographers Jerry Spagnoli, Deborah Luster, duo Keith Calhoun and Chandra McCormick, and freelance curator Eva Diaz; moderated by photographer Stephen Hilger. To what extent does photography's indexicality--its link to what is real--remain as the medium continues to evolve away from traditional photographic materials toward digital technologies? Suggested donation $3.00. Discussion will be held at Louisiana ArtWorks, 725 Howard Avenue at Carondelet.
