The School of the Photographic Arts: Ottawa (SPAO) is presenting a series of events from January 22 through February 28 on The Shrinking World of Photography. Free and open to the public, this programming explores the question, “How do photographers share a visual language across cultures?”

There will be a day-long symposium on January 24 with panels and presentations and several photo exhibitions on view. The photo-and-video installation Beauty in the Middle: Women of Congo Speak Out will be presented at Ottawa’s SAW Gallery from January 22 to February 6. A group exhibition from January 24 through February 28 will include Luca Nicolini‘s Esperando and Mozhde Nourmohammadi‘s We … Others. These artists examine the relationships between individuals and their country and whether we can be true to ourselves when not in our place of origin.

For more information, please visit the SPAO symposium website.
