20/20 PANEL DISCUSSION // SAT, NOVEMBER 14, 1:00-2:30 PM MT // ONLINE ZOOM EVENT // POST-2020: FORAYS INTO THE FUTURE OF ART AND LENS-BASED MEDIA

Post-2020: Forays into the future of art and lens-based media explores the current state of contemporary art in 2020 and offers aspirations for the field and application of lens-based media. Join us as we investigate the trajectory of lens-based media practices and speculate on the future.

Image-making technology has become ubiquitous as the digital age has inspired new modes of connectivity, and photography and lens-based media have served as a crucial tool for change. The 21st Century paradigm shift of 2020 will forever be underscored by the COVID-19 global pandemic and framed within the sociopolitical tensions fueling civil unrest throughout the world. We are witnessing the negotiation of the new era and CENTER is collaborating with unique voices in the field to investigate the trajectory of lens-based media practices and speculate on the future within this pivotal context.
