Silver Eye is excited to present a solo exhibition held at two separate locations by LaToya Ruby Frazier at Silver Eye's Penn Avenue gallery and at the August Wilson Center's main galleries. 

Silver Eye presents a solo exhibition by LaToya Ruby Frazier held at two locations: Silver Eye's Penn Avenue gallery and at the August Wilson Center's main galleries. Frazier will exhibit a large selection of works, which offer an incisive exploration of the legacy of racism, the working class, and economic decline in America’s small towns, as embodied by her hometown of Braddock, Pennsylvania. Frazier's work focuses on working class life in Western Pennsylvania.

Ms. Frazier received the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Fellows Award in 2015 and works in photography, video, and performance in order to build visual archives that address industrialism, rustbelt revitalization, environmental justice, health care inequity, family, and communal history. Her work is exhibited widely in the U.S. and internationally, with notable solo exhibitions at Brooklyn Museum; Seattle Art Museum; Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; and Contemporary Arts Museum Houston. In 2015, her first book The Notion of Family (Aperture, 2014) received the International Center for Photography Infinity Award.
