Slideluck Staten Island

Join us on the lawn for a curated multimedia slideshow of artists' work with the theme of Women's Work, combined with a potluck dinner!

To celebrate Alice Austen's independent and rebellious spirit, featured photography, artwork and multimedia pieces will explore the current state of women's lives and interests around the world. This theme may be addressed from a variety of perspectives, including inspiring success stories to revealing profound adversities to more playful interpretations. Our aim is to create dialogue and awareness about the issues women face globally.

The show will be curated by artist LaToya Ruby Frazier and Director of Photography at Amy Pereira.
