ACP Lecture Series: Charlotte Cotton

High Museum of Art

Featuring work by: Charlotte Cotton

Tickets available soon: acpinfo.org/tickets

In her talk, Everything Ahead of Us, curator Charlotte Cotton will discuss the climate of contemporary photographic practice — both reasons to be optimistic about the state of artist-led photographic ideas, and the factors that militate against it. Cotton will address themes through her recent curatorial projects and publications, including her 2015 survey of Postinternet photography, Photography Is Magic; Public, Private, Secret: On Photography and the Configuration of Self (2018); and her current rewriting of the influential text book The Photograph as Contemporary Art.

Curator, essayist and creative consultant Charlotte Cotton has been a major influence in the medium of photography and recently served as the first Curator in Residence at the International Center of Photography (2015-2016). Cotton held curatorial positions at Victoria and Albert Museum and The Photographers’ Gallery in London; the Wallis Annenberg Photography Department at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Metabolic Studio in Los Angeles. She has been a visiting scholar and critic at institutions including The New School and NYU, New York; California College of the Arts, San Francisco; and Otis College, Los Angeles.
