Works by Thomas Ball, Madeline Osborne, Gilles Peress, Martha Rosler, and Charles Ferdinand Wimar will form the basis for the discussion.

Note: Attendees will be standing for the majority of time. No food, drink, pens, or bulky items are permitted in the Study Room. Pencils and clipboards will be provided. There are secure storage options available.
