July 27, 2019 at 13.00 in the Gallery of Modern Art of the State Museum of Fine Arts of the Republic of Tatarstan (Kazan, Karl Marx Street, 57) a lecture will be held by the famous Russian curator, photo researcher, director of the Photo Department Nadia Sheremetova “Why do some photographs take into contemporary art, and others not? ”
“Each of us once wondered:“ Why is this considered an art?! ” We look at the picture, installation or object and we may not understand why the work presented is considered photography. How is it related to the photographic image? Or, if we see a work at least similar to a print in a frame, then why is it claimed to be significant? After all, it does not correspond to the aesthetic ideas of most of us. Most likely, we were faced with modern photography, in which the form is inseparable from the transmitted meaning.
It is important and interesting to learn how to read this new form and see the difference between a photograph that fell into the territory of modern art from one that cannot become part of it. The point here is not the criteria for the selection of work by the curators - it is the tactics of the production of the image and the nature of its origin. And the fact is that our viewers’ interpretation is simply not triggered by photography without the meaning implied in it.
During the meeting, we will see how the author’s thought fits into the form, how the meaning and impossible experience are produced by using the resources of other art tools by the photograph, how the contexts are managed and how they affect perception, and also try to understand how studying helps in all this theories of photography.
