Solo ESAS Mujeres: Documenting the Universal | Material

ASTERISK PEOPLE ISSUE

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 (Chuleta), Stephanie Syjuco, and Robyn Twomey.

These artists acknowledge and continue the tradition of documentation using their own language.
