Jennifer Long to speak on panel at Glasgow School of Art

Congratulations to Jennifer Long who speaking at a panel at the Glasgow School of Art on April 25th!

 

The symposium is a contribution to the appreciation of the current Franki Raffles exhibition Observing Women at Work at Reid Gallery, The Glasgow School of Art, 4 March – 27 April 2017.

 

A series of panels will take place at the Glasgow School of Art on April 25th, 11am-4pm, titled ‘Assessing the legacy and impact of Feminist photographer Franki Raffles.’

 

 

This symposium will draw on the Franki Raffles Research project to look in depth at Raffles’ work from 1981 until her death in 1994. There will be papers that outline the initiatives leading to the current exhibition and charting how it was planned. Raffles died suddenly and unexpectedly and without the chance for her to select and organise her work for future preservation. For twenty years, her photographic practice has been largely forgotten and unkown. This symposium will consider the legacy of her work, in Scotland and in other countries, examine how the central themes of her practice are relevant to women and photography today.

It grapples questions such as:

What are the lessons for contemporary feminist and social documentary photographic practice, archive collections and exhibition curation from this work now over 20 years old?

~

Jennifer Long will be speaking on a panel titled ‘WildFires: creating an ecology for women’s practice in Scotland today.’ 

Wildfires is the Womens Photography Network in Scotland, which you can read more about here.

 

Congratulations Jenn, and safe travels!

Participants will be selected through an application process in May 2017 that is based on artistic merit, availability and interest in collaboration.

Art Camp recognizes the profound and essential value that diversity brings to the creation, reception and circulation of creative practices and discourse. We encourage applications from members of equity-seeking communities including women, racialized and Indigenous persons, persons with disabilities, and persons of all sexual orientations and gender identities/expressions. We encourage members of equity-seeking groups to self-identify within their letter of intent in their application.

In Fall 2016, a collaboration was formed through faculty members Mary-Ann Kennedy (Napier University), Jennifer Long (OCAD University), Katherine Parhar (Napier University) and Clare Samuel (Ryerson & OCAD University). With a focus on research and creating networks to explore current trends in gender and photography, we began piloting projects in Edinburgh and Toronto with the goal of sharing information and providing opportunities for art creation and dialogue.  The Gender & The Lens exhibition is the first public presentation of this network and in May 2017, we begin our first collaborative project, Create & Converse.  This research hub will be an online platform dedicated to artworks and dialogue by lens-based artists exploring themes related to gender.
