> DESCRIPTION
Much has been made of the documentary turn in recent art practice, particularly photography. In exhibitions like Thomas Weski's Click Doubleclick (2006) or Coco Fusco and Brian Wallis's Only Skin Deep (2003), questions are posed about the photograph's ability to capture or shape reality. What do we want of photographs--as documents or as fine art--in a time replete with images and their easy manipulation? Join art historian Geoffrey Batchen, critic and curator Okwui Enwezor, and artist and curator Coco Fusco for this conversation on the photograph today. The Whitney's chief curator Donna De Salvo moderates.
