From Shannon Liao’s article “The Met’s new art exhibit is told entirely through smartphone photos” for The Verge:
As the world gets ready to celebrate the iPhone’s 10th anniversary on Thursday, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City gave a sneak peek at its experimental Talking Pictures exhibit today, which invites artists to communicate to one another only in photos snapped on smartphones.
For the exhibit, the Met commissioned 12 artists of different backgrounds and asked them to invite another artist to be paired with to engage in these digital and visual conversations. The rules were simple: artists had to work within a five-month period from November 2016 to April 2017; send photos to their artist partner without providing any captions, comments or context; and not share any of the photos on social media until the exhibit was revealed.
