The Walther Collection, The Center for the Study of Social Difference at Columbia University, and The Barnard Center for Research on Women will present Imagining Everyday Life: Engagements with Vernacular Photography, a two-day international symposium on Friday, October 19 and Saturday, October 20, 2018. The symposium aims to articulate multiple definitions of vernacular photography within a newly expanded field of critical investigation—reconsidering the context and meaning of often overlooked photographic practices and tracing their specific social histories. Bringing together speakers from a wide range of academic disciplines, presentations will consider vernacular photography in its diverse stylistic forms, utilitarian applications, and regional variants.
Organized and co-chaired by Brian Wallis (The Walther Collection), Marianne Hirsch (Columbia University), and Tina Campt (Barnard College), the conference will consist of four panels: Why Vernacular Photography? The Limits & Possibilities of a Field, which seeks to define, question, and re-value the field itself; Troubling Portraiture: Photographic Portraits and The Shadow Archive, exploring the structures and logic of utilitarian portrait photography; Performance and Transformation: Photographic (Re)visions of Subjectivity, unpacking photographic representations and the self-imaging of race, gender, and sexuality; and lastly Space, Materiality, and the Social Worlds of the Photograph, which examines the physical and tactile nature of vernacular photographs, as well as their relationship to viewing conventions, circulation, and representations of private and public space. Participants include Ariella Azoulay (Brown University), Geoffrey Batchen (University of Wellington), Clément Chéroux (SFMoMA), Patricia Hayes (University of Western Cape), Nicole Fleetwood (Rutgers University), Lily Cho (York University), Ali Behdad (UCLA), Laura Wexler (Yale University), Jack Halberstam (Columbia University), Shawn Michelle Smith (Art Institute of Chicago), Sophie Hackett (Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto), Elspeth Brown (University of Toronto), Leigh Raiford (UC Berkeley), Drew Thompson (Bard College), Thy Phu (Western University), Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett (NYU), and Deborah Willis (NYU).
The symposium coincides with The Walther Collection’s multi-exhibition series titled “Imagining Everyday Life,” curated by Brian Wallis, which includes the exhibition currently on view at The Walther Collection Project Space, Scrapbook Love Story: Memory and the Vernacular Photo Album. The series will culminate in a major exhibition at the collection’s Neu-Ulm campus in 2020, accompanied by a catalogue co-published with Steidl.
