Online Talk | Pushing Boundaries of Photo-Based Work

Posted in lectures (to attend), online learning by Editor on July 11, 2021

Kyungmi Shin, Lunch on the Grass, 2020. The work layers an image of a picnic from 1960s Korea (an image which includes Shin’s father, a Protestant pastor) on top of an image of François Boucher’s Chinese Garden from around 1742. The oil painting by Boucher is in the Musée des Beaux-Arts et d’Archéologie de Besançon. For more information on Shin, see Susan Stamberg’s piece for NPR, “An Artist Explores What ‘Crosses the Ocean’ in Porcelain and Painted Collage,” (12 November 2020), produced in response to the exhibition Kyungmi Shin: Father Crosses the Ocean on view at the Orange County Museum of Art in Santa Ana, California from 24 September 2020 until 21 February 2021.

Beyond the Frame: Pushing Boundaries of Photo-Based Work
Online, The Getty, Tuesday, 20 July 2021, 5pm (Pacific Time)

In this conversation, multidisciplinary artists Mercedes Dorame, Kori Newkirk, and Kyungmi Shin discuss how their approaches to art making and activism push the boundaries of photography, transforming it beyond its perceived objectivity and conventional format. Their work is featured in the exhibition Photo Flux: Unshuttering LA, which disrupts the privileging of white narratives in photography by celebrating the diverse, dynamic practices of contemporary Los Angeles artists. The event is free, though advance sign-up is required.
