Lectures in Photography & co-presentation with the MoCP : Susan Bright

Susan Bright is a British curator and writer based in Manhattan. Her curatorial practice operates across the registers of exhibition making, writing, public speaking, and teaching. She strives to engage across different methodologies and scales of working, taking in projects in national museums, non-profit medium scale galleries, publications, and formal education. Particular research interests include contemporary portraiture specializing in the representation of mothers across fine art and the media. She was formally a curator at the National Portrait Gallery and Acting Director for the MA Photography at Sotheby's Institute of Art, London. Recent exhibitions include: Home Truths: Photography and Motherhood (The Photographers' Gallery/Foundling Museum, London and MoCP, Chicago); Something Out Of Nothing (Fotogalleriet, Oslo); 1+1=3 Contemporary British Portraiture (Australian Centre of Photography, Sydney); How We Are: Photographing Britain (co-curated with Val Williams, Tate Britain) and Face of Fashion at the National Portrait Gallery, London. She is author of Art Photography Now and Auto Focus-The Self Portrait in Contemporary Photography, both published by Thames and Hudson. She is currently pursuing a Curatorial PhD through Goldsmiths College, University of London. Official webpage http://susanbright.net/
