Lecture and talk show will be held during exhibition period

A special event, featuring a lecture and a talk show by this year’s judges; Paul Graham, Rineke Dijkstra and Sandra Phillips, will be held on November 9.

In Part 1, Paul Graham, a giant in contemporary photography circles, will give a lecture celebrating his long-awaited new publication “Mother” (Mack). And he will be available to sign copies of his publications.

In Part 2, photographer Rineke Dijkstra and Sandra Phillips will hold a talk show. Rineke Dijkstra is renowned for her compelling portraits that confront her subjects with unflinching honesty. At the talk show, she will present her works including “I See a Woman Crying” (Weeping Woman), a video work that seems to aspire for a new photographic expression and draw near to the boundary between still images and videos.

Definitely plan to come!
