Staten Island Invitation

Jamie Diamond SI Header with details

On Saturday, July 19th, we will have our first Slideluck on the waterfront of Staten Island at the historic Alice Austen House!

Alice Austen (1866-1952) was a truly dynamic and modern woman. She was one of America’s earliest female photographers, landscape archtitect, master tennis player and early automobile adopter. She lived with a female companion for 30 years in the Victorian Gothic cottage that will host this show.

To celebrate her independent and rebellious spirit, the theme of this show will be Women’s Work. The featured photography, artwork and multimedia pieces, curated by LaToya Ruby Frazier and Amy Pereira, will explore the current state of women’s lives and interests around the world. The theme will be addressed from a variety of perspectives, including inspiring success stories to revealing profound adversities to more playful interpretations. Our aim is to create dialogue and awareness about the issues women face globally.
