Panel Discussion: McKnight Artist Fellowship for Photographers

Since 1981, the McKnight Artist Fellowships have delivered significant financial assistance to individuals whose work demonstrates accomplishment and the promise of continued excellence. Awards are made in 12 disciplines through 9 arts organizations and presenters.

mnartists.org, the administrative home of the McKnight Artist Fellowships for Photographers, supports mid-career artists residing in Minnesota who use photography as a primary means of creative, personal expression. The $25,000 fellowships enable four artists to study, reflect, experiment, and explore over a 12-month period, which culminates in a presentation of their work—this year, a book project—and a public program.

Join 2012–2013 recipients Jenn Ackerman, Teri Fullerton, Jason Pearson, and Katherine Turczan for a conversation with Walker chief curator Darsie Alexander about the state of photography as a medium within contemporary art as well as the objecthood of artist’s books.
