Last night I gave a talk at Maryland Art Place that was about my work as an artist and a curator. Framed as a presentation of my own curatorial research from the past year, I highlighted 10 emerging photographers that I feel are making extremely important and contemporary work who I think are really going to start being recognized in the coming years. My secondary goal was to highlight the importance of opening up more of a dialogue surrounding the inclusion of women of color in the discourse of contemporary photography, and by extension, the arts in general.
I also emphasized that I was using the word woman specifically as a self identification marker rather than an something assigned to someone and that I had made the choice to be genderqueer and trans*-questioning inclusive in my selection of artists. Similarly, I use the designation of ‘person of color’ in the same way - self identified, and thus including artists who were mixed race. Emerging was also a designation I made sure to define not only as ‘young’, but rather, those who are currently at the beginnings of a career.
