Organized in conjunction with the exhibition Vesna Pavlovic: Lost Art at the Hanes Art Gallery, Wake Forest University. Focusing on sites and events of cultural significance, Pavlovic’s art examines the power of photography to conflate individual and national identity.
Through installation, she draws our attention to the way in which projection can collapse the image and its representation and the dangers inherent in that process.
The talks and discussion at this symposium will address the ways in which the display and projection of the photographic image can pull the curtain back on the constructed nature of history.
