Postcards from America Panel at the Portland Art Museum
Started in 2011, Postcards from America is an ongoing collaborative photographic experiment in creating polyphonic visual sounds. To date, there have been nine Postcards projects around the country involving nearly twenty photographers from the Magnum photo agency. The ninth project, based in Portland, has been an exploration of photography and social practice.
In this panel discussion some of the photographers who are working on the local iteration of the Postcards project will come together to talk about the history of the project, as well as their experience of completing projects in Portland in conjunction with the Art and Social Practice MFA program.
Photographers on Postcards Portland: Susan Meiselas, Jim Goldberg, Alec Soth, Bieke Depoorter, Peter van Agtmael, Donovan Wylie and Zoe Strauss.
