Artists In Conversation: Max Dean and Hiraki Sawa

May 11, 2012

How do collections and archives form part of contemporary photographic practice? As part of Scotiabank Contact Festival of Photography, artists Max Dean and Hiraki Sawa discuss the influence of historic and found photography on their respective practices.

Dean will speak about his new work Our Album, a piece involving a restored camper van that functions as a traveling museum through which he passes on custodianship of his collection of found family photo albums to the public.

Sawa, Artist-in-Residence from April to June 2012, will reflect on the use of historic photography in his video works, while referencing the research he will focus on while at the AGO.
