Yale Photo Pop Up Lecture Series
Started in response to the shift to online learning during the 2020 pandemic, the School of Art’s Director of Graduate Studies in Photography, Gregory Crewdson initiated and hosted this special series of online events which function as short 30-minute to hour-long discussions. I served as host, co-producer, and digital archivist for these 28 events that took place between April 1 and May 10, 2020.
In each Q&A, Crewdson asks a set list of questions to engage each artist in conversation about their practice, as well as how they’re adapting and responding to the current crisis. These standardized questions are often followed by more impromptu questions asked directly by MFA students in the Photography department here at the School of Art. While the recordings of all of these online events cannot be made publicly available, select clips and full segments are archived on the School of Art website.
Guests included Kara Walker, Errol Morris Mike Diamond, Adam Horovitz, Spike Jonze, Jim Jarmusch, Catherine Opie, Sally Mann, Tilda Swinton, Brit Marling, Stephen Shore, Kelly Reichardt, William Eggleston, Hilton Als, Jonathan Lethem, Ben Stiller, Ari Aster, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Cate Blanchett, Kim Gordon, Stan Douglas, Noah Baumbach, Malcolm Gladwell, Robert Eggers, Robert Adams, Wolfgang Tillmans, James Murphy, Natasha Lyonne, Nan Goldin, and Wes Anderson.
