[event] LOOKING ASKANCE


10/12/2015

Marco G. Ferrari is traveling to India this month to take part in a series of artist talks and a group exhibition titled Looking Askance curated by Laura Letinsky, in New Delhi. 

Drawing on India’s long tradition of documentary photography, Looking Askance considers contemporary photographic works from the University of Chicago that respond to media imagery surrounding current events. These works complicate what it means to “bear witness” by proposing a problematic relationship to the utopic premise that photographs can shift the social and political conditions they picture. Through photography, collage, video, and large-scale installation, Looking Askance casts suspicion on the use of photography’s rhetoric to convey historical narrative as absolute. Curated by Laura Letinsky, Professor in the Department of Visual Arts for the Delhi Photo Festival. Artists include: Matthew Connors, Valerie Snobeck, Daniel Traub, Anna Elise Johnson, Marco G. Ferrari, Danielle Rosen, and Jayson Kellogg. Presented by The University of Chicago Center in Delhi and Logan Center Exhibitions.
