Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), 5905 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA is proud to announce “Photography and Philosophy,” a conference in collaboration with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and sponsored by the Mellon Foundation. The event will take place at LACMA on March 13th and 14th. 

We began to explore the topic of “Photography and Philosophy” in nonsite’s 11th issue. The six essays included in that issue are intended as exchanges around three topics—the autonomy of the photographic image, automatism, and time and meaning—that will be the themes of three panels in a two-day conference at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, March 13 and 14, 2015.
