Event Description
“Chinese Photography: Documentation as Art”
Documentary photographs led the way to the artistic recognition and museum collecting of photography in the West. More than a half century later, Chinese “avant-garde photography” has become internationally popular and yet China’s documentary photography has only just now begun to gain recognition. Why this contrast? Do Chinese museums regard photography differently than Western museums do? Do Chinese photographers see China differently than their Western counterparts do? And what does politics have to do with it all? This talk is based on the first major exhibition by Chinese documentary photographers held in America, curated by Professor Silbergeld at the China Institute in New York City.
