4:30 pm: Aperture Presents: Time Frames: An Artist’s Talk with Jowhara AlSaud
3:00pm: Use Me, Abuse Me: at Smack Mellon Gallery
Use Me, Abuse Me begins with Kessels’ a posteriori observation that easy access to photography tools and software results in quicker, more facile modes of image production, consumption and disposal. Perhaps a condition of this state, a plethora of photographers and image-makers are experimenting with pre-existing images and using them within their own work on an unprecedented scale. Photographs are variously collected, reinterpreted, cut, copied, pasted and generally abused.
