Upcoming Exhibition, “The Expanded Caribbean: Contemporary Photography at the Crossroads” at Drexel University

Several of my pieces will be included in an upcoming exhibition at Drexel University’s Leonard Pearlstein Gallery. See details below.

Peering Through, Archival Inkjet Print on Canvas, 2013

September 19 – December 10
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 28, 5-7pm

The Expanded Caribbean: Contemporary Photography at the Crossroads features work by 16 artists with projects based in several different nations and communities neighboring the Caribbean Sea.  The exhibition brings together images that document, interrogate, challenge, and otherwise engage the meaning of place in an area with a rich history as a target of exploration and conquest, voluntary and forced migration, trade, travel, and tourism. Responding variously to cultural, historical, mythological, and personal aspects the region, artists initiate dialogues about how events of the past inform contemporary experience in a continually shifting and evolving environment.

The exhibition is accompanied by a quality print and electronic catalog that includes images of all works as well as contextual scholarly essays by Dr. Mimi Sheller, Professor of Sociology at Drexel University, and Dr. Susanna W. Gold, Curator.
