CWA: FACE AT THE mARSDEN GUSTAFSON GALLERY
@ FILM NORTH
opening reception Thursday oct. 12th 6 - 9pm and running through the end of december
In the midst of Teqen's campaign for city council, City Wide Artists was asked by the Marsden Gustafson Gallery at FILM NORTH (formerly IFP MN) to present an exhibition of photography by emerging photographers of color. What some don't know is that the Minneapolis of today is a hot bed of POC photographic talent. The hardest part for Nathan Young and Teqen in curating this exhibition was to whittle the list down to the essentials.
It is with great pride that we will present photographers Sarah White, Peter Phung, Wale Deen Agboola, Pao Her, and Bobby Rogers as a collection of new thinkers with the eye for modernity and cultural re-appropriation. These are the new-Minnesotan photographers of today—come experience how they are taking what is theirs back.
