Reading Group

Developing Historical Negatives

May 18, 1–3pm

Gallery 44 Centre for Contemporary Photography
401 Richmond St W Ste 120


Gallery 44 hosts a group discussion of short readings pertaining to Developing Historical Negatives. This series is in conjunction with the Critical Distance exhibition An Archive, But Not An Atlas.

Join curators Gabrielle Moser and Liz Ikiriko in a conversation about the gestures artists and researchers use to activate the photographic archive. Reading out loud from performance studies scholar Diana Taylor’s book, The Archive and the Repertoire (2003), and photography theorist Tina M. Campt’s book, Image Matters (2012), the group will meet across both gallery spaces to consider the “archival choreographies” deployed by artists to develop alternate histories from private and public collections.

Please RSVP to heather@gallery44.org to receive advance copies of the readings.
