“In the Room” Feature Essay in April 2018 Art in America

In this essay, I explore MoMA’s Forums on Contemporary Photography, particularly the forums in 2016-2017 “Queer Photography from Stonewall to AIDS,” and “What Makes Photography Feminist & Queer?” I also write about Darrel Ellis and the history of the New Photography series and the relationship between unscripted conversations and exhibition practices at institutions like MoMA. “In the Room” appears in the April 2018 issue of Art in America.
