Art Talk: Kaja Silverman, Geoffrey Farmer, and Dan Byers

  • The Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston 100 Northern Avenue Boston, MA, 02210 United States (map)

Kaja Silverman’s recent publication The Miracle of Analogy is the first of a two-volume rethinking of photography. Silverman writes that photography is the world’s primary way of revealing itself to us, and that the photographic image is an analogy rather than a copy, as commonly understood. Join Silverman as she introduces her poetic and influential ideas on image making. Artist Geoffrey Farmer, whose exhibition at the ICA presents new ways of thinking of photographic prints, will then join the author along with Dan Byers, Mannion Family Senior Curator, for a conversation on the power of images. 

Copies of The Miracle of Analogy will be available for purchase at the ICA Store.
