cit.i.zen.ship: reflections on rights


  • NYU: Department of Photography & Imaging Galleries 721 Broadway New York, NY, 10003 United States (map)

My work "Charlottesville" from the Counternarratives series will be on view at NYU as part of this group show curated by Lorie Novak and Deborah Willis.

The Department of Photography & Imaging at NYU Tisch School of the Arts in collaboration with For Freedoms' 50 State Initiative presents cit.i.zen.ship: reflections on rights with photographs, works on paper, writings, and video that reflect on human rights and notions of citizenship.

Conceptually and characteristically, each of the artists uses different symbolic references to visually represent the definable issues surrounding civil rights, resistance, environmental issues, immigration, race, class, gentrification, gender equality, LGBTQ+ rights, voting rights, disability rights, prison reform, freedom of speech and more. They use documentation, process, history, and personal experience to engage the politics of this nation and pave the way for new narratives in the future.
