Stimulus: Photography
Thursday, May 16, 2019
6:30-8:00 p.m.

Why do some artists choose photography? How does the camera allow for the telling of unique stories?

Stimulus: Photography brings you together with curators, photographers, and visual artists to discuss these questions and more. McColl Center alumnus artist Ben Premeaux; photographers Melissa Alexander, Gina Esquivel, and Mitchell Kearney; and visual artist William Paul Thomas talk about their relationship with photography and the creative process. Jonell Logan, independent curator and executive director of the League of Creative Interventionists, leads and moderates the conversation.

The Stimulus series offers McColl Center visitors deeper insight into the work and ideas of contemporary artists. These sessions aim to make connections between current McColl Center artists-in-residence, alumni artists, and the Charlotte arts community.
