The Griffin Museum and the Photographic Resource Center is thrilled to bring celebrated artist Accra Shepp to be our keynote speaker for the 2024 New England Portfolio Reviews. Since 2009 NEPR has been co-produced by the Griffin Museum and the PRC with the mission of bringing reviewers and photographers together from New England and beyond for two days of discussion, networking, and gaining fresh perspective on one’s work. NEPR serves photographers who are just embarking on their careers, and more established photographers, all hoping to reach new audiences and gain fresh perspective on their work. The online format allows for an expansion of participants in volume and in location including reviewers such as gallerists, book publishers, museum professionals, critics, educators and advisors from all over the world who provide guidance and potential opportunities to grow artist practices.
Join us online Friday April 5th at 7pm Eastern / 4pm Pacific for this special conversation.
