Face – Photo Exhibit
October 12 - December 21
Featuring work by Wale Deen Agboola, Pao Houa Her, Peter Phung, Bobby Rogers, and Sarah White, the Marsden/Gustafson Gallery at FilmNorth is proud to present Face. Like the artists featured in this exhibition, Ann Marsden strove to reveal the soul of her sitters and to honor the truth of her subjects. The Marsden/Gustafson Gallery at FilmNorth is proud to present this exhibition of photography of these talented emerging artists of color. Face is presented in partnership with City Wide Artists.
From Exhibition Curators Nathan RP Young and Teqen Zéa-Aida of CWA:
Face looks to the intersection of style, race, class, and culture in Minnesota. Face looks like brushing your teeth in the a.m., nightcrust still in your eyes, flipping through glossy glamour mags and losing sight of your own light, your exquisite crusty light. Face the luxury of ethnicity and the virtuosity of color. Face spectatorship. Face pop ruin, and spaceships for the heart. We’re not after what’s original—we want you genuine.
Opening reception: Thursday, October 12, 6–9 pm.
The Marsden/Gustafson Gallery is located at FilmNorth, 550 Vandalia Street, Suite 120, Saint Paul.
This exhibition is supported, in part, by the Archie D. and Bertha H. Walker Foundation.
