6:30 PM – 9:30 PM @ICA Tina Campt presents a talk on ‘quiet photography‘. Campt theorises the everyday practices of refusal and fugitivity enacted in a frequently overlooked genre of black vernacular photographs.
Following her talk, she will be in conversation with Rizvana Bradley. Their discussion will explore the historicisation of different photographic archives within the Afrodiaspora, ranging across American, European and South African contexts, and will touch upon the global circulation of black iconicity and the possibilities for visual resistance within images of vulnerability and captivity.
‘Quiet photography’ comes from Campt’s publication ‘Listening to Images‘ (Duke University Press, 2017) which will be available to purchase in the ICA Bookshop.
Tina Campt is Ann Whitney Olin Professor of Africana and Women’s Gender and Studies, Director of the Barnard Center for Research on Women and Chair of the Africana Studies Department at Barnard College-Columbia University.
Rizvana Bradley is Assistant Professor of Film and Media Studies and African-American Studies at Yale University.
