Primetime: A Virtual Photography Exhibition


By Jazmyn Beauchan

Originally intended to be on display at the YoungArts Gallery, Primetime: A Virtual Photography Exhibition takes on new meaning as the world continues to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic. The virtual presentation is inspired by the idea that artists, especially now, are who we can turn to for meaningful contemplation, allowing us to reflect, to look forward and to tune out the white noise of information. In this exhibition, lens-based artists participate in contemporary discourses around current affairs, disease, race and representation, body image and heritage” in the words of Luisa Múnera, Curator and Exhibitions Manager.

Exhibiting artists include Gabrielle Broome (2019 Visual Arts), Justin Clarke (2020 Photography), Eli Dreyfuss (2016 Photography), Glenn Espinosa (2016 Visual Arts), Nathan Hayes (2019 Photography), Carlos Hernandez (2019 Photography), Chiemeka Offor (2020 Photography), Derrick Ostolaza (2017 Film), Kyle Smith (2020 Photography & U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts), Jordan Tiberio (2011 Photography) and Taylor Wang (2020 Photography).
