Several of the photographers whose works are currently displayed in the Zilkha Gallery will be on campus tomorrow afternoon. Come for their panel discussion, Eye of History: The Camera as Witness, followed by a book signing and public reception:
Internationally renowned documentary photographers Wendy Ewald, Eric Gottesman and Susan Meiselas join acclaimed writer and critic David Levi Strauss in a panel discussion about photography’s role in the world today. Wesleyan President and historian Michael Roth will introduce the panel. A Q&A session will follow. Participating as audience members will be a significant number of international scholars of photography and history including former photo editor of the NY Times, Vicki Goldberg.
Following the Panel there will be a public reception and book signing at Zilkha Gallery at 6:30 pm. If you haven’t seen it already the reception will be a wonderful opportunity to view the current exhibition curated by Nina Felshin, “Framing and Being Framed: The Uses of Documentary Photography,” which features works by the Panel presenters and other artists.
All are welcome. Hope you can join us for this exciting event.
