What does the future of photojournalism look like? As part of Dispatches, award-winning Photojournalists and members of VII Photo Ron Haviv and Ed Kashi discuss their work on the ground in places of crisis and social change, including the Middle East and the US on issues ranging from Arab Spring, to the 2016 Presidential election, to Black Lives Matter.
Dispatches gathers and generates artistic responses to the news by 34 contemporary artists and photojournalists. The exhibition, on view from November 1, 2016 to February 19, 2017 at the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art in North Carolina, includes a survey of works from 2010 – present and launches a series of commissions, or “dispatches” on current events and the critical issues of our time.
The Dispatches public program features artist talks and live performances. Partnerships with Universities and a blog mentorship initiative with student Millennials will appear in the new media landscape that is the show’s defining context.
