LOOK3 2013 was one for the ages! Guest curators Melissa Harris and Yo Cuomo brought eight legendary photographers to Charlottesville with on-stage performances and gallery exhibitions. It was a tremendous honor to present the photographic luminaries: Carrie Mae Weems, Gregory Crewdson, Josef Koudelka, Martha Rosler, Michael Nichols, Richard Misrach, Susan Meiselas, and Tim Laman
The Paramount Theater, the Pavilion, the downtown restaurants and coffee houses were all brimming to capacity during the three days of the Festival. We were also thrilled to see such an incredible turnout at the block party outside the exhibits of Michael Nichols and Richard Misrach on the McGuffey Art Center lawn. The finale party at the Jefferson Theater with the dance ensemble Flex is Kings was an extraordinarily ending for this LOOK3 audience of photographers, editors, curators, students, gallerists, and enthusiasts who flew in from around the world to participate.
“We couldn’t host this event anywhere else. The unique setting of our special town, the sophisticated and cultured community of Charlottesville, and the passion of this audience of photographers creates the magic that happens at LOOK3.”
Thanks to all who attended and we look forward to seeing you in June 2015!
