The BFA Photography Department at the School of Visual Arts (SVA) and Dear Dave, magazine present photographers Oliver Chanarin and Adam Broomberg in conversation with curator and writer Susan Bright. This is the second in a series of monthly conversations exploring contemporary photography among noted artists, critics, curators and editors.

Oliver Chanarin and Adam Broomberg have worked as a collaborative photographic team for over a decade. Based in London, their work seeks to examine the language of documentary photography, and fuses conceptual practice with social activism. They have produced six books together including, Ghetto (Trolley, 2003), which won Photo District News’s Best Book of the Year Award, and The Red House (Steidl Editions, 2007). Their work has been shown at The Hasselblad Center, Sweeden; The Photographer’s Gallery, UK; National Portrait Gallery, UK; Victoria & Albert Museum, UK, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, John Hansard Gallery, Southhampton; and Brancolinigrimaldi, Italy. They are represented in New York by Bill Charles.

Susan Bright is an independent curator and writer. She is the author of the bestselling book Art Photography Now (Thames & Hudson, 2005) and curator of the 2007 exhibition Face of Fashion, at the Royal Portrait Gallery in London. She also serves on the photography faculty at SVA in New York.

This event is free and open to the public.
