Join us Monday, May 2, at 6 pm, for presentations by student curators of the online exhibition The World Through the Eyes of Others: A Visualization of Struggles, Successes, and Resilience. Students will present on photographs from the exhibition that they have researched, analyzed, and discussed throughout the semester in the social work course “Power, Privilege, and Oppression,” taught by Skidmore Assistant Professor of Social Work June Paul. Visitors will have the opportunity to see the online exhibition and view the artworks in person.

Concepts explored range from intersectionality, empowerment, resilience, civil and human rights, activism, community organizing, and more, with an emphasis on sensitivity to and awareness of social and cultural contexts. Student curators will facilitate dialogue about how these themes become inextricably bound to individual self-concept, as well as to the ways in which they are perceived by society.

Student presenters are Cary Chiarelli, Sofia D’Abate, Gabriella DiDomenico, Jack Egan, Anna Eiler, Gillian Garvey, Phoenix Goldenberg, Anyeliza Gonzalez, Ella Lage, Stella Lane, Zach Lepak, Maya Litton, Daniella Nacht, Armin Ohadi, Kayla Piper, Cheimi Reyes, Lily Ross, Avery Stamps, Katie Tarvin DeFusto, and Kirstie Yuen.
