Take It From Here
Curated by Zora J Murff and Rana Young
Take It From Here features artworks by ten emerging
photographers who use the camera as a multifaceted site of
imagination, play, and self-exploration. Considering photography’s
sordid relationship with the politics of representation, the selected
artists collectively highlight new freedoms and visual possibilities of
self-expression alive within the medium.
For this project, curators Zora J Murff and Rana Young are collaborating with Travis Shaffer, Assistant Professor at the University of Missouri, and founder of the publishing project theretherenow. Founded in 2016, his publishing project uses risograph printing to produce collaborative, experimental, peripheral, and contemporary publications. The publication and exhibition will be a study on multiple collaborations between curators, designers, and artists. Using the risograph’s unique processes, the curators are borrowing from the color spaces present in each artists’ works to create a new four ink palate.
