Reflecting Voices

Feb 19, 2021 - Apr 17, 2021


On view from February 19, 2021 - April 17, 2021 at the Colorado Photographic Arts Center is Reflecting Voices - a collection of photographs from bodies of work by Alanna Airitam, Narkita Gold, and Rashod Taylor. In photography, light that reflects off a subject is most often what the camera records to produce a photograph. Here the subject is diverse expressions of black identity. Alanna’s tribute to Black culture as realized through characteristics of Dutch portraiture and the Harlem Renaissance; Narkita’s revealing portraits of Denver’s Black community seen through bright, colorful backgrounds; Rashod’s testimony of the Black American experience documented through an intimate study of family. It is an honor to spotlight these artists, who each reflect on identity, race, and legacy in their own way through the art of portraiture. With this exhibition we seek to provide the space to reflect, engage in conversation, and respond to our current moment. Curated by Samantha Johnston, CPAC Executive Director & Curator.

Tentative timed-entry for the opening reception will be offered on Saturday, March 6, 2021. Registration will be required.

And on Wednesday, March 10th, a virtual Zoom discussion with the artists will take place. Samantha Johnston, CPAC Executive Director & Curator, will be moderating. Separate registration for this special programming will be required.

Please see CPAC's website for the most up to date information.
