There is a great show at the MFA’s William Morris Hunt Memorial Library, curated by my friend Jennifer Nichols. If you’re in the Boston area, it is worth checking out.
This is great symposium series, with the added bonus is that it is free.

I’m going to be posting more in depth posts on this tumblr. Until then though, here is the: “Let them sing it for you” widget. Click the title.
I’ll be TAing a course next academic year, titled: “4 Photographers” at SMFA. Each semester we’ll invite four guests (photographers, critics, curators, etc) who will give a lecture and critique selected students work. I’m looking forward to working with Bonnie Donohue in the fall and Jonathan Calm in the spring.
We’ve already started to fill some of the guest slots (I’ll post the names once we have confirmation), but I’m still fielding recommendations. I subscribe to the broadest sense of the term photography. This includes, but is not limited to, all incarnations of analog, digital photography, film and video, alternative processes, and installation. The guests; should have reached some notoriety, ie: show or publish regularly. I’m also interested in featuring a critic or a curator familiar with contemporary issues within photography. What is important is how compelling the candidate’s work is and how well they can critique student work.
If you know of someone who meets this criteria, post a name and a link or write me a message: firstname.lastname@example.org
