Workers detailNancy Davenport‘s work deftly utilizes digital technology to investigate questions of photography’s medium-specificity, connecting discourses on documentary with the manipulated image. Davenport examines the politics of representation by tracing the continuities of historical photographic practices within contemporary digital culture. Her latest project, Workers, a multi-screen DVD installation, is currently on view at the Instanbul Biennial.

Davenport received her B.F.A. from York University in Toronto and her M.F.A. from School of Visual Arts in New York. She lives and works in New York City. She has exhibited her work at the 25th Bienal de Sao Paulo, PROA Fundacion in Buenos Aires, Musee d’Histoire de Luxembourg, Photo & Contemporary, Turin, and Rockford Art Museum. Davenport teaches in the Graduate Photography Department at School of Visual Arts, Milton Avery Graduate School for the Arts and the ICP/Bard Program in Advanced Photographic Studies.

Lecture funded by the Clarence White Fund For Photography, OU School of Art.
