Sonia Louise Davis documents people and places, addressing the notion of public and private spaces through an autobiographical approach. Questioning the values of materiality and photographic archive in the digital age, Davis’ photographic practice weaves personal narrative, memory and authorship, and examines notions of empowerment and community.
On the occasion of Sonia Louise Davis’ recent project and as the culminating event of her residency at Residency Unlimited, Davis and Shlomit Dror, independent curator and American Art Research Associate at the Newark Museum, will discuss the evolving body of Davis’ work and the relation to identity and history resonating in Davis’ photographs. Additional guest speakers will be Kalia Brooks, independent curator, Adjunct Professor, Photography and Imaging Department, Tisch School of the Arts, NYU, and 2012 Curatorial Fellow, A Blade of Grass, and Kameelah Janan Rasheed, photo-based conceptual artist, archivist, writer and youth educator based in Brooklyn, NY.
Please join us for a public conversation and exhibition at Residency Unlimited in Carroll Gardens on Tuesday December 4, 2012, from 6 to 8 pm.
