THRU OCTOBER 7 – Colorado Photographic Arts Center
CPAC presents OUTCRY, a powerful and timely project by nationally acclaimed photographer and women’s rights activist Whitney Bradshaw, opening August 18. The project includes more than 440 photos of women from all walks of life who have chosen to take a stand against a culture that too often dismisses women’s voices. Drawing from her background in social work, the Chicago-based artist invites small groups of women who are not previously acquainted with each other to gather for “scream sessions,” where they can express emotions—ranging from rage to sorrow to laughter—in a safe and supportive environment designed to cultivate a spirit of feminist solidarity across different life experiences. The resulting photo portraits challenge expectations around how women—and in particular, women’s anger—are portrayed in traditional portraiture and mainstream culture.
