Deliberate Acts: Opening Night Gala for the Alice Austen Triennial of Photography



October 5th, 2019



Save the date for a celebration of photography, accompanied by cocktails, delicious food, dancing and a not-to-be-missed art auction.


"Deliberate Acts", inspired by the writing of Audre Lorde, former Staten Island resident and celebrated Black lesbian feminist, writer, and activist will attempt to uncover the state of contemporary photography on Staten Island and showcase a borough that is often under-represented citywide. Featuring photography by Staten Island residents and others looking at the borough, this juried exhibition will aim to find contemporary themes and narratives that photographers are currently exploring in their work through traditional, digital, and innovative uses of the medium. 

Honoring Kelly Vilar with the Alice Austen and Gertrude Tate Award for Community Leadership and Gillian Laub with the Alice Austen Award for the Advancement of Photography.



$95 per person

$900 for a group of 10
