And The Others : Opening Night
January 4, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Opening Night of “& The Others” – a group photo show opening January 4th, on view until February 25th
& The Others is a POC collective of visual artists all based in the Bay Area, CA. Our members vary in creative backgrounds ranging from in art, music, and fashion; yet the shared focus of the group is based in the practice of photography and the creation of photographic books, prints & exhibitions. The group formed from shared aspiration to grow and support each other as artists seeking to share their work with the larger community.
& The Others is driven by the desire to cultivate community through the acts of creating, sharing ideas, challenging one another, and ultimately placing our work in the context of something larger than ourselves. As a collective, we aim to encourage the development of our member’s individual styles, artistic approaches and visual language. We strive to stand beyond ourselves and our own personal bodies of work through an exploration of the ways in which the medium of photography can be expanded beyond its customary presentations. Various members engage this expansion through the mixing of mediums, examining of existential themes, sequencing images into visual stories, and engaging a deeper intimacy between oneself and the photographic subject.
