SYMP: Intersecting Photographies @ Howard University

Registration is now open for Photography Network’s Second Annual Symposium (October 13-15, 2022) in Washington, DC. Register now!

(With apologies for cross-posting)

“Intersecting Photographies,” will be held at Howard University in Washington, DC, from October 13-15. We hope that many of you will take an interest in the presentations and conversations that will be fostered there, from an artist conversation between LaToya Ruby Frazier and Leslie Ureña to a keynote by Tina Campt, a pecha kucha featuring lightning talks to six panels presenting more in-depth research questions. To view the complete schedule online, which also includes an awards ceremony, receptions, and Saturday workshops hosted at DC-area institutions by local experts, please view our Symposium page.

You must be a Photography Network Member to register for the symposium, with annual dues beginning as low as $20. Click on the registration button and follow the instructions to register for the In-Person ($50) or Online ($20) experience. We apologize that our website does not offer the capability of joining or renewing your membership and registering for the symposium in a single transaction.

Photography Network is a 501(C)3 and College Art Association Affiliated Society whose purpose is to foster discussion, research, and new approaches to the study and practice of photography in its relation to art, culture, society, and history. Through a range of programming, Photography Network (PN) cultivates a spirit of community and exchange with the aim of advancing innovation in the field.

We encourage you to register early for the symposium. We do not have a registration cap, but availability is limited at the three DC-area hotels with whom we have made arrangements for discounted rates. Additionally, three of the four optional Saturday workshops will be collections-focused at area institutions including the Library of Congress, National Gallery of Art, and National Museum of American History, where space is necessarily limited; the fourth, with the National Museum of the American Indian, will be held over Zoom to accommodate those participating in the symposium remotely.

If you encounter any problems during the registration process, please reach out to us at photographynetworksymposium@gmail.com. We thank the Terra Foundation for American Art and the Phillip and Edith Leonian Foundation for their generous support of this program.

Best,
Monica Bravo and Caroline Riley
Photography Network Co-Chairs
