Parsons The New School for Design
Panel Discussion: Art + Business: Navigating the New Landscape
Tuesday, April 8, 2014, doors at 6:00 pm
Free and open to the public.  Registration encouraged.

Michelle Bogre, Associate Professor of Photography at Parsons, lawyer, documentary photographer and author, moderates a panel discussion presented by the Parsons Institute for Intellectual Property.

Fabrice Nadjari, entrepreneur and photographer
Andrea Blanch, editor-in-chief of Musee Magazine
Michael Foley, gallery owner, Foley Gallery
Anna Walker Skillman, gallery director and curator, Jackson Fine Art

Sustaining a robust photograph practice today requires not just the obvious level of creativity, but a good hint of marketing, branding and social media management, a constant attention to new storytelling tools as well as a working knowledge of the gallery culture, dealer-artist relationships, copyright and contract law. What is the new landscape of photography? How do you sustain a vibrant practice? How can platforms such as Instagram or Facebook enhance a creative practice and its visibility? And in this ever-changing landscape, how have the relationships of the traditional players of the art world evolved?

To tackle these topics the Parsons Institute for Intellectual property (PiiP), brings together a panel of experienced professionals with diverse backgrounds in art and photography, the gallery world, modern law, social media and marketing who will discuss the things you need to know about how to navigate the various intersections of art, business and law.

April 4th, Milwaukee: Opening Reception for the “Veterans Book Project”

Milwaukee Art Museum
Opening Reception Veterans Book Project: Objects for Deployment
Thursday, April 4, 2013, 5:00-8:00 pm
Panel discussion at 6:15 pm, Lubar Auditorium

“The Veterans Book Project evolved out of a book that Monica Haller authored with Riley Sharbonno, a veteran and nurse at Abu Ghraib prison. Since 2006, the project has facilitated thirteen bookmaking workshops around the country, including at the Museum in December 2012. In these workshops, combat and non-combat veterans, their families, and others affected by the current American wars are invited to edit and design their archives and stories into softbound, print-on-demand books. Five books were created by local authors in the workshop at the Museum—a soldier’s mother, a Vietnam War veteran, two veterans of the Iraq war, and a local scholar whose research brings her into close contact with veterans.

The fifty books in the exhibition serve to redeploy the volatile images of war for a broad audience, while helping the authors rearticulate their memories and fashion narratives so as to make the experiences more manageable. Each book not only stands on its own but also works in concert with the larger collection, which Haller sees as an archive, a container of memory traces and image fragments from wars that are not talked about nearly enough.

The exhibition and the Panel Discussion on April 4 offer viewers the opportunity to engage with veterans’ experiences through reading, writing responses, informal conversation, and facilitated discussion.

The Veterans Book Project continues the Museum’s joint mission with the War Memorial Corporation “to honor the dead by serving the living.”

The exhibition will be on view April 4 – September 2, 2013.

About the Exhibition
“On Veterans Day 2012, the MFAH debuts an unprecedented exhibition exploring the experience of war through the eyes of photographers. WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath gathers together nearly 500 objects, including photographs, books, magazines, albums, and photographic equipment.

Images recorded by more than 280 photographers, from 28 nations, span 6 continents and more than 165 years, from the Mexican-American War in the mid-1800s to present-day conflicts.

The exhibition examines the relationship between war and photography, exploring the types of photographs created during wartime, as well as by whom and for whom. Rather than being organized chronologically, or as a survey of “greatest hits,” the images are arranged to show the progression of war: from the acts that instigate armed conflict to “the fight,” to victory and defeat, and photos that memorialize a war, its combatants, and its victims. Portraits of servicemen, military and political leaders, and civilians are a consistent presence.”

The exhibition will be up November 11, 2012 to February 3, 2013.

Panel Discussion & Reception: On the Razor’s Edge: Form and Content in Documentary Photography
Thursday, May 17, 2012 at 7:00 pm
Reception and book signing to follow panel discussion.

On the Razor’s Edge: Between Documentary and Fine Art Photography is a featured exhibition at the New York Photo Festival in DUMBO, Brooklyn, May 16-20, 2012.

The artists are leading documentary and editorial photographers working today and include Bruce Davidson, Rina Castelnuovo, Lori Grinker, Platon, Reza, and Eugene Richards. The show is curated by Glenn Ruga.

The exhibition concept explores how photographs based on representations of our world can exist both as documentary and as fine art, and how the meaning of the work can be transformed in each environment. Each of the artists represented here produce powerful work on important global themes. The emphasis on the meaning of this work can vary if the work appears in a commercial art gallery, non-commercial art gallery, book, museum, or on the internet.

This panel will discuss the issues of form and content in documentary photography.   Following the panel will be a reception for the Razor’s Edge exhibition, as well as for The Art of Documentary exhibit in the mezzanine level of powerHouse Arena. This exhibit is work from a call for entries from SocialDocumentary.net.”
