Round up: BLACK PORTRAITURE{S} II

Black Portraitures II_Save the Date_Mailchimp Header WITH Corners

The ‘BLACK PORTRAITURE{S} II: Imaging the Black Body and Re-Staging Histories’ conference took place earlier this summer at Villa La Pietra, home of the NYU Florence program. This was the 6th conference in 6 years organized in large part by DPI Chair Deborah Willis, exploring perspectives on the historical and contemporary role played by photography, art, film, literature, and music in referencing the image of the black body in the West. The conference was hugely successful with more than 580 people in attendance including New York City’s First Lady Chirlane McCray.

Hat tip to DPI administrators Edgar Castillo, Brandy Dyess, Patricia McKelvin, Abi Roucka for their hard work on the front, middle and backend of this endeavor. Other DPI community members in attendance included Dean Allyson Green, Shelley Rice, Ulrich Baer, Mary Schmidt Campbell, Zalika Abdul-Azim, Claudia Mann, Nicole Motta, Kalia Brooks, Hank Willis Thomas and former DPI admin M. Liz Andrews.

Facebook Event Here

The Department of Photography & Imaging presents Record of Cherry Road, an exhibition of photographs by alum Elizabeth Moran (’07), recipient of the Department’s 2013 Tierney Fellowship. Moran writes, “Record of Cherry Road investigates the myths that surround my family’s home, the farmhouse of an old plantation in Memphis, Tennessee. Storied to be haunted, the house contains a multitude of histories that are ever-present yet hidden. With the help of my aunt and uncle, both paranormal investigators, the project seeks a presence that exists within familial lore…. Documentation of paranormal activity from my mother’s childhood, like a map of footsteps or a flash in a window, further conflate myth and history. Referencing spirit photography from the nineteenth century, when ectoplasm was made of cotton, and contemporary images of the paranormal, where chromatic aberrations are not just an artifact of a digital sensor, the project questions our continued reliance on photography to prove a belief.” Photographs from Record of Cherry Road has been featured in the New York Times Lens Blog, BBC World News, Wired, Lenscratch, and Don/Dean.
