Traces of Nitrate

    Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther


    Xavier Ribas presents Nitrate in a symposium organised at the Whitechapel Gallery as part of the exhibition A Handful Of Dust, curated by David Campany, 17 June 2017.

    Notes on the Index: Photograph, Trace, Subject

    What is the relationship between images and their subjects? Does the index remain a useful framework for contemporary photography?

    To coincide with A Handful of Dust, this symposium takes Rosalind Krauss’s seminal 1977 essay as a point of departure. Bringing together artists and theorists, the event explores ideas of perception, abstraction and the passing of time, as well as signs, traces and trauma.

    The exhibition’s curator David Campany is joined by writer and critic Brian Dillon and art historian and theorist Margaret Iversen, followed by a panel including artists Xavier Ribas, Rut Blees Luxemburg and Eva Stenram, moderated by Clare Grafik, Head of Exhibitions, The Photographers’ Gallery.
