"Finding One's Place: Photography and Its Many Dimensions" is a two-day symposium co-organized by LACMA, USC Visual Studies Research Institute, and UCR ARTS, convened by Britt Salvesen and Vanessa Schwartz. Inspired by the LACMA exhibition 3D: Double Vision, the symposium will go beyond stereoscopy as such to address larger questions of how photography has historically been deployed to depict place and to situate viewers in space. Speakers will address the use of photography in geological accounts, hierarchies of value in curatorial practice, and the history of immersive installations, among other topics. The symposium will also include an exhibition viewing at LACMA on Friday, Feb. 1, and an overview of the Keystone-Mast Collection at the California Museum of Photography, Riverside, on Saturday, Feb. 2.  Bus transportation from USC to Riverside will be provided.
