Panel Discussion

New York, New York

Aperture Foundation at The New School presents this panel discussion as part of the tenth season of the series Confounding Expectations: Photography in Context. The Projected Image will explore the multiple ways in which contemporary artists have utilized projection and installation strategies to display still photographic images, creating immersive and cinema-like experiences in museum and gallery environments. Departing from the large-scale, tableau treatments of the photographic image printed and framed as wall-based objects, exemplified in works by Jeff Wall, Andreas Gursky, and Gregory Crewdson, in recent years contemporary artists have increasingly employed projection devices—ranging from analogue to digital high-definition—to display photographic images as immaterial light projections, often incorporating temporal and audiovisual elements that recall cinematic contexts yet retain distinctly photographic qualities.

Moderated by George Baker, associate professor of art history, UCLA; panelists include photographers Andrea Geyer, Paul Pfeiffer, and Krzysztof Wodiczko.
