We are excited to announce that Issued ID has been selected as one of sixteen projects to be awarded an Alternative Exposure Grant.
Funding provided is to present a third and expanded installation of Issued ID, my multi-platform project unpacking the impositions of identity. Issued ID: Minority as Brand discusses the problematic nature of being a minority (race, gender, class…) and being in the arts. Pushing beyond the exhibition walls, the project includes a series of panels and salons, commissioned works and performances, and a publication. Issued ID offers a common thread of dialogue on identity, spurs unique conversations in a public forum, and raises awareness of an issue that is being struggled with in the current art and social climates.
San Francisco, CA, November 12, 2015 – Southern Exposure Awards $72,000 to Bay Area Visual Arts Groups in Round 9 of the Alternative Exposure Grant Program 16 Alternative Exposure Grant Recipients Announced…
Alternative Exposure provides monetary awards – giving grants of up to $5,000 – to foster the development and presentation of artist-led projects and programs in San Francisco and Alameda counties that are direct, accessible and open to the public. The program, launched in 2007 in partnership with the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, was developed in response to the dynamic, under-the-radar work of artists and small groups that have long been emblematic of the San Francisco Bay Area’s arts community. With this ninth round of funding, Alternative Exposure will have awarded $563,000 in direct funds to 151 projects.
