Conversations and screenings
Curated by Douglas Fogle and Hanneke Skerath

SOUND & VISION has offer visitors a wide array of intellectual perspectives on the use of images from some of the leading international artists and curators working today.

Organized by independent curators Douglas Fogle and Hanneke Skerath, the program consists of five conversations taking place over the course of the three days of Paris Photo Los Angeles. Each program brings together a pair of artists for a lively and open dialogue about their artistic practices as well as more philosophical discussions about the status of the image in contemporary society.

Each conversation is be preceded by a short conceptual meditation on issues raised in the work of the artists by a leading curator or critic from the fields of photography, contemporary art, and cinema. Screenings of participating artists' moving image works will immediately follow selected conversations.
