WE ARE A CAMERA

OCTOBER 23 – NOVEMBER 17, 2017

OPENING OCTOBER 23, 5 - 6 P.M.

 

We Are a Camera features the video work of Christina Patino Sukhgian Houle, Paulina Mendoza, and Aja Segapeli, all alumni of the School of Art and Design at Texas State University. The title refers both to the pervasive act of using a camera lens to mediate one’s experience of the world, and to the necessity for individuals to act collectively by using cameras to document and make public singular experiences of discrimination. Artists included in this exhibition explore how moving images enable the construction of identity, as well as how they might be used to reconcile identity issues for a larger public. We Are a Camera is curated by Kaytlin Esparza, a junior art history student at Texas State University and Spring 2016 Texas State Galleries Intern.
