Art History from Home: What Makes a Photograph?
Photography is both the most accessible and inaccessible art in a museum's collection. Almost all of us have captured personal images with phones or cameras, a commonality that in turn creates skepticism of institutionally-recognized photography. We might ask, what makes that photograph artistic compared to the work that I do? This session will examine key historical and technological shifts in the photographic medium through selected artworks in the Whitney's collection by artists including Dawoud Bey, Adrian Piper, James Rosenquist, and James Van Der Zee.
