The Elevated Selfie, is a group series that celebrates the conversation around contemporary self-expression. Alongside the selfies are included narratives that express deeper meaning, a collection of key experiences that grapple with trauma or celebrate moments of joy.
The group show, juried by Photolucida’s Laura Moya and Laura Venti, The Elevated Selfie: Beyond the Bathroom Mirror, is featured in the Griffin Museum’s Atelier Gallery at the Stoneham Theatre in Stoneham, MA, July 12 through September 16, 2016. The opening reception will take place on September 13, 2016 from 6:30- 8:30 p.m.
Laura Moya and Laura Venti explain the selfie to be ubiquitous, celebrated, mocked, and curiously irresistible. “In designing this exhibition, we wanted to create a richer dialogue around this vernacular mode of self expression. The goal was to create an exhibit that would go beyond navel-gazing to get at something a little bit deeper.”
The group exhibition includes photographers: Rebecca Akporiaye, Suzanne Beaumont, Sheri Lynn Behr, Beata Bernina, Lika Brutyan, Lorenka Campos, Carol Dass, Elizabeth Bailey Dyer, Shana Einhorn, Cheryl Fallon, Jennifer Henriksen, Erika Huffman, Diana Nicholette Jeon, Kinsey Kline, Lauren Koplowitz, Patricia Lay-Dorsey, Elizabeth Clark Libert, Andrew Lucchesi, Caroline MacMoran, Kelsey Magennis, Susanne Maude, Jennifer McClure, Kathryn Mussallem, Michel O’Hara, David Pace, Catherine Panebianco, Connie Gardner Rosenthal, Barbara Ruffini, Jacinda Russell, Sunny Selby, Ilma Szekeres, Randall Tosh, David Wolf, Shelley Wood, and Birgit Zartl.
