“Photo Slam” is a departure from the typical artist lecture or exhibit. Each photographer will have five minutes to demonstrate how he or she works — using a variety of methods such as slides, digital projections and other tactics before a gong signals the speech’s end, said Kelsey Karper, OVAC associate director.
“We wanted to come up with a unique way to showcase Oklahoma photographers,” she said. “It’s a cool opportunity to see how differently each one of them works and what they do. It’s very fast-paced, so it keeps things interesting.”
Afterward, attendees can join the artists and other guests on the roof terrace of OKCMOA for “Cocktails on the Skyline.”
“Photo Slam” begins at 7 p.m. in the museum’s Noble Theatre. Entrance to the event is included in the price of the museum admission, which is $5 after 5 p.m. Advanced reservations are recommended.
