Exhibition Checklist

Contemporary work by artists of color from the Center for Photography at Woodstock.


Race, Love, and Labor includes work by twenty artists, including LaToya Ruby Frazier, William Cordova, Deana Lawson, Tommy Kha, Tim Portlock, Endia Beal, and others, who have participated in a unique residency program for artists of color at the Center for Photography at Woodstock (CPW), New York. Culling from CPW's collection, Lewis selected photographs, artist books, and video by artists who understand the needs of labor in the fullest sense of the word: a means through which we birth ourselves anew. The catalogue includes a curatorial statement by Sarah Lewis, a history of the Woodstock Artist-in Residency program by CPW director Ariel Shanberg, and an overview of the twenty year collaboration of CPW and the Samuel Dorsky Museum at SUNY New Paltz by Dorsky director Sara J. Pasti.
