Join us for the keynote address for 2021 Louisville Photo Biennial from Texas photographer Keith Carter. Dubbed both a “a transcendent realist” and “a poet of the ordinary,” Carter’s work has been featured in over 100 shows in 13 countries and he has 14 published monographs including Keith Carter: 50 Years (2018).
In addition to his books, Carter’s photographs are included in many public and private collections including the Art Institute of Chicago, the National Gallery of Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the collections of Elton John and Barack and Michelle Obama.
Carter teaches photography at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas where he is Regents Professor and holds the Endowed Walles Chair of Visual and Performing Arts. Carter has been awarded that University’s highest teaching honors, the Distinguished Faculty Lecturer Award and University Professor Award. In non-pandemic years, he conducts workshops and seminars in the United States, Latin America, and Europe.
