Curated by iona rozeal brown and Veronica Jackson, this 25th Annual Solo Mujeres exhibition utilizes photography, watercolor, graphite, textiles, audio, video, and mixed-media to explore aspects of female empowerment through documentation. As documenters of their identity, lives, loves, losses, and related matter, these artists, as narrators, are chroniclers of the worlds around them. They are the visual story tellers interpreting their visual voices through these various mediums.
The distinguished line up of artists includes: Nina Chanel Abney, Dawn Black, Zöe Charlton, Gina M. Contreras, Lisa Cortés, Martha Diaz, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Deborah Grant, Jessica Ingram, Nicole Markoff (Nicacelly), Kelly Ording, Wanda Raimundi-Ortiz, Stephanie Syjuco, and Robyn Twomey. These artists acknowledge and continue the tradition of documentation using their own language.
April 25, 6:30-9p, “Night in Conversation”: Join participating artists and curators, moderated by Dr. Ella Diaz (Visiting Lecturer, School of Interdisciplinary Studies, SFAI), as we explore their various processes and motives, in so doing, their relationship to the conceptual line of the exhibition― identity explored through documentation.
