Timed to coincide with the U.S. release of the new book Art Photography Now, this panel considers some of the most compelling and innovative photography currently being made.

Photography helped shape art in the late twentieth century; in the twenty-first, it has begun to dominate it. Not only are major international museums and galleries devoting blockbuster exhibitions to the medium, but artist-photographers are also being celebrated as contemporary masters and their work commands unprecedented prices. Art Photography Now is a stunning survey that presents the work of seventy-six of the most important and best-loved artist-photographers in the world today, including Andreas Gursky, Thomas Struth, Cindy Sherman, Jeff Wall, Sophie Calle, Wolfgang Tillmans, Nan Goldin, Martin Parr, Gregory Crewdson, Boris Mikhailov, Inez van Lamsweerde, Katy Grannan, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, and Sam Taylor-Wood, to name a few.

This panel is part of the "Aperture Foundation Lectures: Confounding Expectation II: Photography in Context," and is presented by the Vera List Center for Art and Politics in collaboration with the Aperture Foundation.
