Josh Azzarella speaking at Akron Art Museum (OH)

On Thursday, September 17th, gallery artist Josh Azzarella will be part of a photography panel at Akron Art Museum on Reality and Fiction.

The panel discussion is held in conjunction with the exhibit Proof, that Azzarella is included in. Proof features photographs from the Civil War to the present. The exhibition highlights familiar favorites from the collection, including classic documentary photographs by Walker Evans, Lewis Hine and Weegee, as well as major series commissioned by the museum from Lee Friedlander and Robert Glenn Ketchum. Contemporary artists who have filtered these documentary styles to question photographic truth are represented by recent acquisitions by Jennifer Williams, Josh Azzarella and Barbara Probst.

The discussion will feature artists Josh Azzarella and Barry Underwood as well as photojournalist Peggy Turbett. Moderated by Akron Art Museum Assistant Curator Elizabeth Carney, the panel will take place in the museum’s Arnstein galleries, allowing the artwork on view to further enrich the discussion.
