JUROR BIO: Alexa Dilworth is publishing director and senior editor at the Center for Documentary Studies (CDS) at Duke University, where she also directs the awards program, which includes the CDS Documentary Essay Prize in Writing and Photography and the Dorothea Lange–Paul Taylor Prize, and the DocX lab. In 1995 she was hired by CDS to work on the editorial staff for DoubleTake magazine. She was also hired as editor of the CDS books program at that time and has coordinated the publishing efforts for every CDS book, including the recent and forthcoming books Road Through Midnight: A Civil Rights Memorial by Jessica Ingram; Where We Find Ourselves: The Photographs of Hugh Mangum, 1897–1922, edited by Margaret Sartor and Alex Harris; Test of Faith: Signs, Serpents, Salvation: Photographs by Lauren Pond; Reality Radio: Telling True Stories in Sound, Second Edition, edited by John Biewen and Alexa Dilworth; and Aunties: The Seven Summers of Alevtina and Ludmila: Photographs by Nadia Sablin. Dilworth has a BA and an MA, both in English, from the University of Florida, and an MFA in creative writing (poetry) from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop at the University of Iowa.
PROGRAMMING: Alongside the Juried Exhibition, the Griffin Museum will organize a series of professional development workshops presented by a diverse range of thought leaders. These workshops will share instrumental ideas, methods and tools to help build the business and legal foundation of a thriving artistic practice.
The gallery exhibition at the Griffin Museum is from July 18 – August 30, 2020
The opening reception is Saturday, July 18, 2020 @ 5 PM (We doubt that a physical reception is possible)
