Pink Dress Project

Gallery Opening on November 8, 2019 from 5-8 PM. Show will hang in the Main Gallery through the month of November, 2019.

The ZACC and A VOICE are proud to present work by young photographers from Mexico, New York, Los Angeles, and Two Eagle River School in Pablo, Montana. This exhibition includes work from The Lower East Side Girls Club of New York City, Club Balam of Chiapas, Mexico, Las Fotos Project of Los Angeles, and A VOICE: Art Vision & Outreach In Community Education at Two Eagle River School.

The project began in Manhattan, NYC at the Lower Eastside Girls Club - where they photographed each other in pink dresses on nearby streets. The same dresses were then shipped to Club Balam, an indigenous girls photography program in southern Mexico. They next shipped to the Las Fotos Project in Los Angeles, California - a photography project for teenage girls. Lastly, they were sent to A VOICE in Pablo, Montana, where students at Two Eagle River School made pictures in several communities in the Confederated Salish & Kootenai Nation.

The Pink Dress Photography Project used left-over pink dresses to help girls break the bounds of peer defined ‘normal’ behavior. By learning to take risks in their art making, the students entered a creative space that grown artists, photographers, performance artists, and activists inhabit regularly.

Photographers from the Salish & Kootenai Communities are Danielle Adler, Zion Bolan, Lee Anna Powell, Nikki Burke, Bojai Grant, Esperanza Orozco-Charlo, Chayla Russell, Chandra Whiteman LaForge, Chaise Yonkin, and the young people from Elmo in the 2018 Tribal Health Summer Youth Leadership Program. Photgraphers from the Lower Eastside Girls Club of New York City are Beatrix Alvarez, Macanve Dolley, Jamecia Graham, Gevalia Vargas. From Club Balam in Chapais, Mexico, photographers are Josefa Victoria Gonzalez Hernandez, Karla Yumari Martinez Perez, Guadalupe Lisseth Hernandez Sanchez, Lucia Hernadez Sanitz, Susana Petrona Perez de la Torre, Julieta Esperanza Gomez Vasquez. And from Las Fotos Project in Los Angeles, California, photographers are Jacqueline Arellano, Luna Calderón, Lauryn Cardiel, Sabinah Lopez.
