Parlor Room is a visiting artist program and lecture series created, run, budgeted and curated by graduate students of photography at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The definition of photography, of what is "photographic," and the uses of photography are broad, unstable, continuously morphing. As photography constantly redefines itself, it has and continues to confront and confuse art.

Parlor Room provokes dialogue and connections with artists, curators, thinkers and critics engaged with photography. Through public presentations, one-on-one studio visits, and informal group events with graduate students and faculty, Parlor Room seeks a diversity of thought and practice.
