Reading Family Photography: Memory Work & Storytelling Workshop

April 6, 2024
2:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Event time is displayed in your time zone.
Lenfest Center for the Arts, Wallach Art Gallery, 6th floor

This workshop invites visitors to Looking for Ourselves: Gauri Gill’s The Americans, 2000-2007 to engage with photographs from their family albums in conjunction with the Instagram-based archive-in-the-making, The South Asian Americans. Following cultural theorist Annette Kuhn’s notion of ‘memory work,’ which involves the active restaging of memories, participants will be invited to mine their photographs for new meanings and possibilities through collective reading and storytelling.

Note: Participants are asked to bring one photograph of their choosing from their family album to the workshop.

Registration is limited to 20 participants.
