The Hillman Photography Initiative connects Carnegie Museum of Art with audiences to exchange new ideas about photography. By collaborating with individuals in and beyond the museum, the Initiative provides opportunities to experience innovative photography onsite and online.
What does the future of photography look like?
The Hillman Photography Initiative is an incubator for new art and ideas rooted in photography and responsive to society at large. The Initiative presents a series of programs over two-year cycles centered around a concept or theme in photography. To ensure the inclusion of diverse perspectives, museum staff invite a small group of external advisors to collaborate and devise a platform for innovative projects.
Since its inception in 2013, the Hillman Photography Initiative has produced dynamic new artworks, exhibitions, publications, online experiences, and conversations transforming our relationship to the photographic medium.
