The Pink Dress Photography Project: Opening Reception Nov. 8th 5:30 - 8:30pm                 The ZACC and A VOICE are proud to present the work by young photographers from, Mexico, New York, Los Angeles, and Two Eagle River School, Pablo, Montana. This exhibition includes work from The Lower East Side Girls Club of New York City; Club Balam, Chiapas, Mexico; Las Fotos Project, Los Angeles; A VOICE: Art Vision & Outreach In Community Education at Two Eagle River School. The project began in Manhattan at the Lower Eastside Girls Club of New York City where they photographed each other on the streets of this neighborhood. The same dresses were then shipped to Club Balam an indigenous girls photography program in southern Mexico, shipped next to the Las Fotos Project in Los Angeles, California a photography project for teenage girls and finally to A VOICE in Pablo, Montana where students at Two Eagle River School made pictures in several communities in the Confederated Salish & amp; Kootenai Nation. The exhibition represents student work from these four locations. Our Pink Dress Photography Project was born out of watching the ways in which left-over pink dresses allowed girls to break the bounds of peer defined ‘normal’ behavior. By learning to take risks in their art making, our students enter a creative space that grown artists, photographers, performance artists, activists and others, inhabit. Pink Dress Photography Project 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.
