2017 Keynote Lecture

On Friday, Oct. 27 we kick off the 2017 Present Tense lecture series with our Keynote Lecture. Each year our Keynote Lecturer helps inaugurate a full weekend of artist lectures, exhibitions, book signings and events. Previous Keynote Lecturers include Penelope Umbrico (2016, pictured above), Jim Goldberg (2015), Duane Michals (2014), Abelardo Morell (2013), and Alec Soth (2012).

Tickets to the Keynote Lecture are available in Summer 2017 and are included with Festival, VIP and Big Passes. Supporters of Group f/16 are invited to a hosted dinner with our Keynote Lecturer and will receive a limited edition print from our Second Sight Lecturer.

Join us this fall for an unforgettable evening with a dynamic voice exploring the medium of photography. The Keynote Lecture takes place at the Lafayette Hotel, located in San Diego’s North Park neighborhood.
