FotoFest is pleased to present a live conversation between artist Ryan Hawk and writer, professor, and theorist Dylan Rodriguez, held in conjunction with the exhibition In Place of an Index. For their conversation, Hawk and Rodriguez will discuss their research and interest in the aesthetics of whiteness in both images and the social imaginary, histories of racial and colonial violence, and the co-option of historical narratives through social, political, and cultural rhetoric and action. Following the screening, the guests will participate in a live Q&A with the attending audience. This event will be broadcast live on Zoom and YouTube live. [Organizer's description]
