Check out this UCCA Art Roundtable, with guest Elisabeth Biondi, who was a juror for Slow Exposures in 2011 and is returning this year to participate in the portfolio reviews. Here’s an excerpt from the the website:
What voice does the photographic image lend to the printed word? What is the relationship between imagery and text? From the stark commentary of photojournalism to unforgettable portraits of leaders and the lavish fantasy worlds created through fashion spreads, representatives from some of China’s strongest publications joins The New Yorker’s former visuals director Elisabeth Biondi to focus on the role of magazines as platforms for photographic work, whether to augment the reader’s experience or present pictorial statements compelling in their own right.
This program is in conjunction with Beyond Words: Photography in The New Yorker, on exhibition in UCCA’s central gallery 15 April – 10 June and is part of the 2012 Caochangdi Photospring Festival program.
