Two of my photographs are in the “Collectively Shifting” Exhibition juried by Cecilia Vargas. It’s at a gallery at the Bridgeport Art Center in Chicago as one of the featured exhibitions for the Women’s Caucus of the Arts, leading up their annual conference in February. It is always very special to be in their yearly exhibition and I’m delighted.
The exhibition opened yesterday and runs through the 16th of February.
The show features … artistic works that address intersectionality; that is the ways that our identities overlap in multiple areas of discrimination, and the way that these intersecting relationships can shift depending on the context of time and location. … considering multiplicity within intersectionality … Artwork includes the historic precedents set by Chicago’s political activist and socially-engaged artwork.
Individuals do not have a singular identity, especially when we consider who we are and how we are. Rather we have numerous ways that we identify ourselves including race, class, gender, sexuality, age, and (dis)ability.
The photographs are both nude portraits of Jerry M. from two different projects of mine.
I wish I could be there; I’d really like to see the exhibition and all of the work. Unserendipitously I will be in Boston that weekend. But there will be a catalogue so at least I’ll get to see the show that way.
If you are in Chicago I’d highly recommend it.
