Photographers Keith Calhoun, Chandra McCormick, and Susan Meiselas join Julian Cox, Chief Curator and Founding Curator of Photography, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco (FAMSF) and Chief Curator at the de Young Museum, to discuss documentary photography and the evolving relationship of photography and film to social activism in the U.S., from the Civil Rights Movement to recent movements such as Occupy and Black Lives Matter. The artists will address these topics in relation to their own photographs, which have captured often marginalized communities on the East Coast and in the Southern U.S., among other areas.Buy tickets/get more info now
