Join us for a public slideshow and spoken word night curated by Strange Fire Collective, to coincide with the one-year anniversary of the inauguration of the current administration. Call and Response: Art as Resistance features over 100 photographs by artists from 17 countries, in response to the current social and political climate in the United States. This event will spotlight women, people of color, and queer and trans artists.


Curated from our first open call for work, Call and Response: Art as Resistance features artists from 17 countries making work in response to the current social and political climate in the United States. This exhibition was first presented in collaboration with the Center for Fine Art Photography, Colorado Photographic Arts Center and Month of Photography Denver. 

The Opening Reception Slide Show was generously hosted by Syntax Physic Opera on March 31, 2017, from during the Month of Photography Denver. See video footage here from the opening reception.

A second presentation of this slideshow will be presented at the Photographic Center Northwest in Seattle, to coincide with the one-year anniversary of the 2017 presidential inauguration. Musicians and spoken word artists will perform alongside the image projections. The Seattle event is made possible thanks to the Seattle Office of Arts and Culture.
