Online Exhibition & Print Sale
Jessie Paige Rowe, Julia Vandenoever, Stephanie A. Lindsey, & Katie Harwood
March 13 - April 9, 2017
In celebration of Denver's Month of Photography, Home Connection spices-up the fleeting Instagram Takeover and transforms incredible work into something that lasts.
These four female artists access ideas of place, loss, and identity in their work and scratch at the surface of their individual connections to home. Home Connection unfolds in a unique format -- It utilizes our Instagram feed @bigbadbettiepress and allows each artist to temporarily take it over to share their photographic series. The exhibition then migrates from the screen to the printed page transforming into a collectable handmade Print Set, which includes one signed print from each artist.
Launching the take over with her own daily act of picture making is Jessie Paige Rowe. Paige Rowe explores the day-to-day life of her two young daughters and has compiled an incredible collection that echoes the complexities and wonders of childhood. Julia Vandenoever delicately uncovers an unusual inheritance, her mothers used tissues, and through her grieving process imagines the untold stories hidden in the folds of each tissue.
Stephanie A Lindsey contemplates the psychological and domestic space she faced after a loss and weaves a subtle yet complex narrative together that focuses on issues of place, family and race in American society. Katie Harwood investigates her relationship with her childhood home focusing on an annual spring cleaning event that Harwood describes as a “ritual purging”, finding links between her personal family history and the “annual airing of dirty laundry.”
Month of Photography Denver is a biennial celebration of fine art photography with hundreds of collaborative public events throughout the region. Learn more here.
