Congratulations to Assistant Professor of Studio Art Martin Wannam, who was just named to the 2023 Silver List.
Modeled on the idea of the Hollywood Black List (the best unproduced screenplays of the year), the Silver List includes 24 photographers selected by nearly 100 curators, educators, publishers, and researchers working in photography in North America. Respondents to the 2023 Silver List were asked to list up to ten artists working in or with photography, with the following criteria:
They love the artist’s work and feel it should be seen more widely
The artist uses the medium of photography (however they define it)
The artist is living and early in their career (however they define it)
Artists who have previously been named to the Silver List are not included in this year’s list.
The resulting list of 24 artists represents the most frequently recommended artists. Collectively they represent a range of approaches to photography, and different ways of engaging with art discourses, contemporary concerns, and personal expression. The artists on the list represent an amazing range of approaches to photography.
