To celebrate the launch of the book and exhibition But Still, It Turns, join Paul Graham at the International Center of Photography, New York, for a virtual gallery tour, exploring the notion of 'photography from the world' via the work of nine contemporary artists who reckon with reality in all its tangle and wonder. 

 

Thursday 13 May 2021

Gregory Halpern and Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa are artists who have used the book form to forge revelatory narratives that transcend the capabilities of the single image. In this conversation, they reflect on the role of sequence in their own and each other’s work, unpacking the formal and political dimensions of the company and chronology their images keep.

Wednesday 12 May 2021

In a wide-ranging conversation, four artists whose work appears in ‘But Still, It Turns’ temper popular fixations with product by turning their attention to process. They discuss how they go about creating images and films among the tangle of reality: embracing surprise and accident, drawing on mythologies and rejecting conventions, working in both solitude and collaboration.
