Meet the Artist: Jess T. Dugan 

Tuesday, May 23, 2017
6:00 pm | Reception | Auditorium Lobby
6:30 pm | Presentation | Education Center

Friends of Photography members are invited to a reception and lecture by Jess T. Dugan, an artist whose work explores issues of gender, sexuality, identity, and community. She has been photographing within LGBTQ communities for the past decade and is deeply committed to the transformative power of photographic portraiture. Her work is regularly exhibited internationally and is in the permanent collections of several major museums.

In her lecture, A Decade of Visual Activism, she will speak about the trajectory of her work over the past decade, her motivations for making photographs, and her experience working as an artist within marginalized communities. She will speak in detail about Every Breath we Drew and her ongoing project, To Survive on this Shore: Photographs and Interviews with Transgender and Gender-Variant Older Adults, which she has been working on since 2013.
