"Framing White Privilege", On exhibit April 1 – 25

Unearthing, acknowledging and archiving White Privilege is the primary focus of my work. My work falls within the ideological category of Post Colonial strategies and interrogations that are based on the writings of Edward Said’s Orientalism that critiques the idea that Western Society is developed, rational, flexible and superior.

For this work, I engaged in discussion with each participant about a site and we would agree upon a location that was directly related to his or her own White Privilege experiences. In my photographs items are chosen that speak to their status while simultaneously acknowledges their white privilege as an asset. It is because of these items that we look at the site in a different way and additionally the site itself informs us to look at the objects in a newly informed way.

Inside-out Project

Resident Artist: BILL PIACESI

The People's Art Project: A global Art Project transforming messages of personal identity into works of art.

The project is to spend a year in The Binghamton Neighborhood creating a photographic portrait of the neighborhood. This “portrait” would not only consist of the people but also the places that define this area of Memphis. A neighborhood that is usually overlooked, unless something negative occurs. The resulting photographs could be utilized as a visual “welcome to the neighborhood” as more Memphians come to see the changes being made.
