“This two-day event reconstructs a selection of panels from the most recent conference in the series held at Villa La Pietra in Florence, Italy here at New York University’s Washington Square campus.

Black Portraiture[s] II: Imaging the Black Body and Re-staging Histories, explored the impulses, ideas, and techniques undergirding the production of self-representation and desire, and the exchange of the gaze from the 19th century to the present day in fashion, film, art, and the archives. Thus, the seventh conference will revisit that amazing experience that attracted over 800 attendees – an occasion that brought together artists and scholars from an assortment of disciplines and practices and offered comparative perspectives on the historical and contemporary role played by photography, art, film, literature, and music in referencing the image of the black body in the West.

Discussions will focus on aesthetics, style, history, and music in describing a sense of place and identity. The conference will also invite visitors to conduct a diverse visual reading of the notion of a black portrait while challenging conventional perspectives on identity, beauty, cosmopolitanism, and community in Africa and its diaspora.  We hope you will join us in New York City!”

January 29th, Tucson: Lecture by Geoffrey Batchen

Center for Creative Photography | U of A School of Art
Lecture by Geoffrey Batchen: “In Absentia: The Politics of Cameraless Photography”
Friday, January 29, 2016, 5:30 PM

“How can a photograph of nothing—of nothing discernable or apparently significant—be said to offer some useful political purchase on the world it inhabits? How can a photograph that represents, but does not depict, a given situation be freighted with historical knowledge and import? Confining itself to examples of cameraless photography, from the 1830s to now, this paper will ask these questions with a view to determining a politics for such photographs in the present. In fact, given our contemporary context, cameraless photographs assume that photography is always already a politics; to engage the visual and chemical grammar of the photograph is to dispute and challenge that fixity of that politics. To make such photographs returns photography to a unique, hand-made craft and away from global capitalism and its vast economies of mass exploitation. Not that these photographs are innocent; on the contrary they are often generated by actions that are toxic, radioactive, enigmatic, violent, dangerous. Nor are they “abstract.” Instead, I will argue, they redefine the nature of photography’s realism as well as its potential as a political agent.”

November 18th, Webinar: Business as unUsual – 21st Century Copyright & You

ASMP Business as unUsual
21st Century Copyright & You
Wednesday, November 18, 2015, 1:00-2:00 PM EST

“No legislative act has a greater impact on your ability to earn a living as a creator than copyright. For the first time since 1976, Congress and the Copyright Office are engaged in serious talks to significantly modernize the Copyright Act and the Copyright Office itself. Global corporations with deep pockets have already aligned against the interests of independent creators. Only our numbers and a strong unified voice can counter their lobbyists and their messaging. ASMP Executive Director Tom Kennedy will give you a solid understanding of what’s at play and how you can contribute to the process to ensure that you’ll be able to earn a living in this new era of copyright.

Please note: Live attendance is limited. All registrants and ASMP Members will have free access to a recording after the event. Non-members who have not registered may access the recording for $4.99.”
