Outcry – OUTCRY is an intersectional social practice project in which womxn have the opportunity to take up space, be witnessed and heard, while joining forces in an act of defiance against the white supremacist patriarchy. Whitney Bradshaw launched her OUTCRY project on the night of the Women’s March in 2018, since then this series has grown to more than four hundred fifty portraits of womxn from all walks of life who have chosen to take a stand against a culture that too often dismisses womxn’s voices. Drawing from her background in social work, the Chicago-based artist invites groups of womxn who are not previously acquainted with each other into her studio for “scream sessions,” where they can express emotions—ranging from rage to sorrow to laughter—and share personal stories in a brave and supportive environment designed to cultivate a spirit of feminist solidarity across different life experiences. The resulting photographic portraits challenge expectations around how womxn—and in particular, womxn’s anger—are portrayed in portraiture and mainstream culture. Together these intimate representations of womxn’s power and expression that Bradshaw captures, become a monumental act of collective resistance. Bradshaw uses the term “womxn” as “an inclusive, if imperfect, term to encompass cis-gendered women, transwomen, and nonbinary and genderqueer people who experience the world in femme bodies.”

Workshops

September 23, 2023
Reframing the Landscape with Beth Johnston: In this three-week workshop, we will explore landscape photography’s historical and cultural significance and its role in shaping the American landscape imagination. The workshop will examine the historical context in which landscape photography arose, particularly in the United States. Lectures, readings, and in-class exercises will guide students through the complex ties between landscape photography, American conservation movements, and the U.S. environmental ethos. Throughout the workshop, we will collectively brainstorm how various cultures define and relate to the land and discuss how this diversity of perspectives continually reimagines the landscape photograph. Out-of-class photo assignments will encourage participants to take what they are learning, questioning, and discussing and apply it to how they engage as photographers. Students should expect to spend at least 1 hour outside of class meetings on these assignments. Additional resources (including PDFs of theoretical readings, podcasts, videos, and artist talks) will be provided after each meeting and at the end of the course for further investigation. Additional class dates: September 30, October 7. Fee: $130 Members | $140 Nonmbers. Instructor: Beth Johnston. Time: 10:00am.
