Self Evidence | Panel Discussion: 'Knowing that my work will outlive me’

Scottish National Gallery The Hawthornden Lecture Theatre (please enter via the back door of the RSA building)
  • Tuesday 15 October, 6-7pm


In its day the photography of Francesca Woodman, Diane Arbus and Robert Mapplethorpe was revolutionary, ground-breaking and at times controversial. Join us for an evening of conjecture with Harriet Riches (Head of Cambridge School of Art, Anglia Ruskin University) and Glyn Davis (Edinburgh College of Art) as we speculate about the legacy of the three artists in relation to where photography is today. Chaired by Annie Lyden, Chief Curator, Photography.
