Event Description

Curator Charlotte Cotton will discuss the climate of contemporary photographic practice—both reasons to be optimistic about the state of artist-led photographic ideas and the factors that militate against it. She will address these themes through her recent curatorial projects and publications, including her 2015 survey of post-Internet photography, Photography Is Magic; her 2018 book Public, Private, Secret: On Photography and the Configuration of Self; and her current rewriting of the influential textbook The Photograph as Contemporary Art.

Charlotte Cotton has explored photographic culture for over twenty years. She has held positions including Curator of Photographs at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Head of Programming at the Photographers’ Gallery in London, and Curator and Head of the Wallis Annenberg Department of Photography at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Cotton’s book The Photograph as Contemporary Art has been published in ten languages and is a key text in charting the rise of photography as an undisputed art form in the twenty-first century.

This program is presented in collaboration with Atlanta Celebrates Photography and Georgia State University.
