The Glenville Exchanges w/ Dawoud Bey

  • The Front Porch 1470 East 105th Street Cleveland, OH, 44106 United States (map)

Dawoud Bey photographs people and things that may otherwise be taken for granted. A 2017 MacArthur Fellow recipient, Bey features subjects who he says “are not always in the larger social conversation.” For the FRONT Triennial, Dawoud Bey’s exhibition will expand the notion of the documentary nature of photography and question the limits of historical reportage.

At The Glenville Exchanges, Bey will interact with youth photographers Jasmine, 17 , Lai Lai, 17 and Yonnie, 19, who themselves are sometimes the subjects, to find voice through the lens of a camera. Often, these youth do not have the historical knowledge, coping skills, or benefits of having open, honest dialogue, and so have found expression in Shooting Without Bullets. The arts-based program assists black and brown teens to process complex social problems experienced by them, and provides a radical platform to speak through artistic expression.
