The Click! Photography Festival’s annual portfolio reviews at the 21c Museum Hotel conclude with a portfolio walk that will be held in the Nasher Museum’s Great Hall. This is an opportunity for visitors to view the work of the Click! Class of 2018, the curated group of 20 artists that participated in the portfolio reviews and mingle with the esteemed Click! reviewers. It will immediately precede the evening’s keynote address in the Nasher’s lecture hall, featuring Keith Carter. There will be light snacks and a cash bar. This event is free and open to the public.
Directly after this event, please join the Click! Photography Festival at Duke’s Rubenstein Arts Center, across the street from the Nasher Museum, for the opening reception of Keith Carter: Fifty Years, an exhibition of work by Keith Carter in tandem with the release of his 13th book (University of Texas Press, 2018). In this career homage, “celebrating a lifetime of exploring humanity’s landscape through an artistic lens,” the photographer collects 250 of his most compelling images, ranging from the deeply personal to the universal. Fifty images have been selected from the book for an outdoor exhibition centered in the arts center courtyard—a Ruby first.
