Jess T. Dugan, Vanessa Fabbre: To Survive on This Shore: Photographs and Interviews with Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Older Adults

January 14 - April 14

PCNW is pleased to present To Survive on This Shore, a new photographic exhibition on view January 14–April 15, 2021. This interdisciplinary project is a collaboration between Jess T. Dugan, photographer, and Vanessa Fabbre, social worker and assistant professor at Washington University in St. Louis, whose research focuses on the intersection of LGBTQ issues and aging.
For more than five years, Dugan and Fabbre traveled throughout the United States seeking subjects whose experiences exist within the complex intersections of gender identity, age, race, ethnicity, sexuality, socioeconomic class and geographic location. They traveled from coast to coast, to big cities and small towns, documenting the life stories of this important but largely underrepresented group of older adults. The featured individuals have a wide variety of life narratives spanning the last 90 years, offering an important historical record of transgender experience and activism in the United States.
The exhibition will include 22 photographs, each paired with texts illuminating the life narratives of those photographed. A hardcover book (Kehrer Verlag, August 28, 2018) contains 65 portraits and texts as well as an interview with Dugan and Fabbre conducted by Karen Irvine, Deputy Director and Chief Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, Ill.

While Dugan’s earlier work focused on issues of identity, gender and sexuality — and often on LGBTQ communities specifically — this is their first body of work that focuses on older adults, a result of their collaboration with Fabbre. Dugan’s portraits are open, emotive and nuanced, utilizing direct eye contact to facilitate a meaningful exchange between subject and viewer. For the accompanying texts, Fabbre provides selections of full-length interviews to enhance the viewer’s connection to each subject’s story. The resulting book and exhibition provide a nuanced view into the struggles and joys of growing older as a transgender person and offer a poignant reflection on what it means to live authentically despite seemingly insurmountable odds.

Jess T. Dugan is an artist whose work explores issues of identity through photographic portraiture. Dugan’s work has been widely exhibited and is in the permanent collections of over 35 museums throughout the United States. Dugan’s monographs include To Survive on This Shore: Photographs and Interviews with Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Older Adults (Kehrer Verlag, 2018) and Every Breath We Drew (Daylight Books, 2015). They are the recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, an ICP Infinity Award, and were selected by the Obama White House as an LGBT Artist Champion of Change. They are represented by the Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago, Ill.

Vanessa Fabbre, Ph.D., LCSW, is an Assistant Professor at the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis, where she is also Affiliate Faculty in Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies and a Faculty Scholar at the Institute for Public Health. She received her Ph.D. from the School of Social Service Administration at the University of Chicago. Her research explores the conditions under which gender and sexual minorities age well and what this means in the context of social forces such as heteronormativity, heterosexism and transphobia. She is also interested in critical perspectives on social work practice and interpretive methodology in the social sciences. She is actively involved in the Gerontological Society of America, the American Society on Aging and the Society for Social Work and Research. Her work has been published in The Gerontologist, the Journal of Gerontology: Social SciencesSocial Work, the Journal of Gerontological Social Work, the Journal of Urban Health and the Journal of Interpersonal Violence.

To Survive on This Shore: Photographs and Interviews with Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Older Adults is an exhibition organized by Barrett Barrera Projects.

Giorgio Negro, Tommaso Protti: The Price of Sugar

November 6 - December 31

Inspired by the slave’s quote in Voltaire chef-d’œuvre Candide “that’s the price you eat sugar in Europe”, this exhibition of photographs brings together the works of Giorgio Negro and Tommaso Protti. The humanist and surrealist photography of the first completes the photo-journalistic frontality of the second. 

In line with Voltaire’s denunciation of a slavery system through Eduardo Galeano’s Latin American manifesto The open veins of Latin America, the works of these two Italian photographers testify to the limits of a system that does not learn from its own mistakes. 

The price of sugar therefore obviously evokes the disasters caused by foreign interference and what follows; corruption, prostitution, deforestation, leveling of cultures, gangs, drug trafficking, gold diggers or extreme violence, but also all the positive forces that can emerge from it. From chaos comes mutual aid, revolutionary theories, heightened faith and ever stronger love. The price of sugar is therefore above all a tribute to resilience. This emanates from strong links between cultures and nature and manifests itself in daily combativeness.

The antagonism between violence and love is precisely at the heart of the complementary aesthetics of artists. The journalistic, raw and aestheticizing aspect of Protti documents the suffering body while the humanistic poetry of Negro unveils this insatiable energy of the spirit. 

In Protti’s project Terra Vermelha, and commonly in high-flying photojournalism, the aestheticization of suffering, which is reminiscent of the work partly also carried out in Brazil by Sebastião Salgado, is not intended to seduce but rather to raise awareness. On the other hand, the manifestation of the spirit in Negro also pays homage to the history of photography. His mastery of framing and his choice of composition specific to a restricted category of photographers, who knew how to mix humanism with surrealism during the 20th century such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, André Kertész or Robert Frank, allow to keep hope.

Rodrigo Valenzuela: Stature

October 29 - December 19

Asya Geisberg Gallery is pleased to present “Stature”, our first solo exhibition with Rodrigo Valenzuela, whose career encompasses photography, installation and video. “Stature” features eight photogravures taken of the artist’s studio constructions. As is typical of the artist, the series masterfully balances on a fulcrum between fiction and documentary traditions, “commonplace” materials and rarefied results, flattened photos of ambiguous scale and three-dimensional references. The forms in “Stature” could refer to Brutalist architecture, outdated machinery, or modernist monsters, but in fact they are concrete and plaster casts of discarded consumer packaging. Their immobility, too, is an illusion – all the forms are carefully stacked and tenuously balanced, rather than glued in place. There is ample metaphor to be quietly contemplated – i.e., undoing a politically repressive regime’s monuments with one push – but Valenzuela resists didactic urges, and instead embeds his interests in labor, capitalism, and socio-political symbols into serene images that slowly reveal their many languages.

Erik Hoffner: Ice Visions

October 24, 2020 - March 6, 2021

I’ve loved snowflakes since the day, as a child, I learned that no two are alike—millions and millions of them in a storm and no twins, every crystalline structure a unique expression of its own making. Erik Hoffner taught me a new lesson in the magic of nature: that thin sheets of freshly formed ice are without peer.

Hoffner is the Snowflake Bentley of our generation. His photographic creations capture patterns in the ice that forms overnight atop the holes bored by ice fishermen on the waterways of New England. Each rondel of new ice possesses its own internal, pictorial logic and materiality. Hoffner’s photographs open a viewing space to consider the dynamics of nature in its unlimited expressive and metaphoric potential.

— Mara Williams, Chief Curator

 

 

Ice Visions is an informal collaboration between myself, the ice fishing community, and elemental forces. When fishing holes refreeze overnight, they create fertile ground for nature’s wild artistic side, and these perfectly augered circles become worlds at once interstellar and cellular, dreamlike and tactile.

The images on display depict ice designs I’ve documented during 20 years of exploring New England lakes and ponds. In the morning light, with tiny bubbles from below fixed in place by several inches of new ice, these scenes come to life as eyes, galaxies, stars, cells, and more when rendered in black and white.

Due to milder than usual temperatures during the past winter, on many mornings I found barely a skin of new ice covering the prior day’s fishing holes. Bubbles pooled up at the surface before freezing, creating striking new kinds of formations I’d never seen before, ones that perhaps reveal the fingerprint of a warming climate.

Federico Pardo: Ice Shanties: Fishing, People & Culture

October 24, 2020 - March 6, 2021

The ice shanty towns that spring up on Vermont’s frozen lakes and ponds are markers of the seasonal communities they harbor each winter. Practical and ingenious, shaped by function and aesthetics, ice shanties are a window into the personal, familial, and local cultures of ice fishing.

These simple yet intriguing structures captured the attention of Colombian-born photographer and part-time Vermont resident Federico Pardo, who in 2016 began documenting the shanties on a frozen floodplain of the West River in Brattleboro, known locally as the “The Meadows.”

Over the course of two winter seasons Pardo photographed the shanties using long-duration exposures, beginning his work after sunset and continuing long into the night. The resulting images, lit by both sunset and moonlight, carry a surreal quality of blended night and day.

Pardo’s photographs offer an atmospheric survey of the structures, the stark landscape from which they spring, and the human presence residing tentatively on an icy surface. His photographs tempt us to imagine otherworldly narratives about the shanties, their owners and the seemingly timeless space they inhabit.

Dreamlike and speculative, Pardo’s images are drawn down to earth by the voices of the shanty owners themselves—many of whom agreed to be interviewed by Vermont Folklife Center researchers for this exhibition. In these conversations the fishers speak of their shanties as structures, remark on the amenities and people they house, detail the practice of ice fishing, and, directly and indirectly, reflect the relationships, connections and community they reinvent each year at the Meadows.

Together, the images and voices give us a chance to connect with the material and human cultures of these ice fishing enclaves.

— The Vermont Folklife Center

 

The Vermont Folklife Center’s Vision & Voice Exhibition Program presents multimedia exhibits and programs that highlight the quiet miracles of everyday living. The Center’s work is grounded in collaborative ethnographic inquiry–spending time with people, interviewing them, and documenting their lives, with the goal of seeking to understand, as best we can, how they make sense of the world. Through its Vision & Voice Exhibition Program, VFC partners with individuals and communities across the state to share their perspectives, creating exhibits that aim to build mutual understanding, foster empathy, and cultivate a future where all Vermonters are valued.
