Photography and the Museum

Contradictory Histories and Contemporary Perspectives - talks and discussion Friday 5 July

To mark the inauguration of the first Museum of Contemporary Photograph of Ireland, this symposium brings together photographers, artists, curators and researchers for a series of conversations about photography and the museum. Speakers include: photo-historian Eléonore Challine (University of Paris, Sorbonne-Pantheon), Alison Nordström (Independent Photography Curator, Boston) and Marco De Mutiis (Digital Curator, Fotomuseum Winterthur). A museum of contemporary photography might offer new approaches and possibilities in relation to the place of photography in the museum, curatorial strategy and scope, policies of collecting, exhibiting practices and knowledge production.

This event is organised by Photography/ Archives / Ireland (three academics/ researchers – Ann Curran (TUD), Fiona Loughnane (NCAD) and Dr Orla Fitzpatrick (NMI) – who share an interest in photography and the archive).
