The Importance of Being Photographed
General Event Information
Taking its cue from a gift from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Arts, this exhibition features a select grouping of contemporary photographers who create situations where the subject and the photographer engage in a dialogue about the nature of being photographed—addressing issues of class, sexuality, sensuality, shame, despair, and privacy. Artists include Tina Barney, Katy Grannan, Jason Lazarus, Malerie Marder, and Catherine Opie. The Importance of Being Photographed is curated by Jane Simon, USFCAM Curator, and organized by the USF Contemporary Art Museum, Tampa.
