We are excited to announce that we are now accepting entries for SLIDELUCK Staten Island. This Slideluck will take place on Saturday, July 19th, at the historic Alice Austen House on Staten Island, New York.
To celebrate the work and life of Alice Austen, a pioneering female photographer, this show’s theme will be Women’s Work. We are asking for photographers, visual artists, and multimedia producers to submit portfolios and projects inspired by female experiences and perspectives. The featured work will be curated by LaToya Ruby Frazier and Amy Pereira.
LaToya Ruby Frazier is a visual artist from Braddock, Pennsylvania. Her work is informed by late 19th- and early 20th-century modes of representation in documentary practice. With an emphasis on postmodern living conditions, class, and capitalism, Frazier investigates issues of propaganda, politics, and the importance of subjectivity. Her work has been shown in museums and galleries in New York City including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Whitney Biennial, P.S.1, MoMA, and the New Museum of Contemporary Art. LaToya is a Guna S. Mundheim Fellow at the American Academy in Berlin class of spring 2014. She is currently completing her forthcoming book The Notion of Family to be released with Aperture Foundation during the fall of 2014.
Amy Pereira has been the Director of Photography at MSNBC.com since May 2013. She is an award-winning photo editor focusing on photojournalism, reportage, documentary and long-form visual storytelling. She has been busy establishing the visual voice of MSNBC.com and shaping all aspects of its photography coverage since its launch in the fall of 2013. Previously, Pereira was the senior photo editor for Newsweek International from 2000-2011 and has edited multiple books and documentary projects over the years. She is based in New York.
