Fellowship 17: Kris Sanford & Francis Crisafio


Fellowship 17 features solo exhibitions from our International Award and Keystone Award winners, selected from an open call for entries in mid-2016. International Award winner Kris Sanford (Mount Pleasant, MI) showcases her series Through the Lens of Desire, which creates implied narratives using snapshots from the 1920s – 1950s. The series brings a contemporary rereading to old photographs to address sensuality and relationships in a subtle way. Keystone Award winner Francis Crisafio (Pittsburgh, PA) showcases HOLDUP in the HOOD: wealth in recession, which documents a collaborative, after-school arts curriculum rooted in self-portraiture. The curriculum and documentation have been ongoing for 13 years and offers young students a chance to learn to look at, and expressively assert, a vision of themselves.
