ABOUT THE BOOK
This is an 80-page catalogue archive of "MFON in Seattle" - a collaborative program of exhibitions and panels, created and organized by artist-curator Berette S. Macaulay with partnering institutions to bring MFON: Women Photographers of the African Diaspora to Seattle.
The program partnership between Frye Art Museum, Jacob Lawrence Gallery, and Photographic Center Northwest invites Seattle publics and beyond to the broad yet nuanced creative, cultural, and interventionist visions offered by black women photographers both internationally as well as in the Pacific Northwest. "MFON in Seattle is a unique opportunity to participate in a growing discourse of in/visibility through direct connection between global and local women photographers of color," explains Macaulay.
It includes a Foreword by Negarra A. Kudumu, Manager of Public Programs at Frye Art Museum; Intro + Acknowledgments from organizer Berette S. Macaulay; essay contributions from the MFON Women founders, artist Adama Delphine Fawundu and photographer Laylah Amatullah Barrayn; community responses from local Seattle writers including Mia Imani Harris and Meshell Sturgis, Ph.C; with statements from Terry Novak, Executive Director of Photographic Center NW, and Emily Zimmerman, Gallery Director of Jacob Lawrence Gallery.
