Image and Object
Collecting and Exhibiting the Photograph
From daguerreotype to digital image, photographs are circulated, collected and presented in a multitude of contexts – carriers of visual meaning, but also specific material objects. This event will consider the use and exhibition of the photograph as an art or cultural object, increasingly held in gallery and museum collections. What is the special nature of the photograph in this context, and what are the current issues and practices involved in the collection and exhibition of photographs?
