Talking Pictures: Camera-Phone Conversations Between Artists (group show)
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York
27 June 2017 - 17 December 2017
Over the past decade, mobile phone cameras have changed how photographs are made, used, and looked at. Whereas the camera once functioned chiefly as a tool for preserving the past, today people are using mobile phones to share their visual experience in real time and with unprecedented intimacy. Photography has become a fluid, instantaneous, ephemeral means of communication - an act closer to speaking than to writing. Talking Pictures: Camera-Phone Conversations Between Artists, highlights this novel aspect of photographic communiction by inviting a diverse group of 24 artists to conduct visual dialogues with one another on their mobile phones or other devices, sending images back and forth in a game of visual ping-pong. The resulting images will be presented in the galleries in various forms: on video monitors, on touch screens, as exhibition prints, and as photo-books available for viewers to page through.
