Unblurred: First Fridays on Penn Art Walk: Friday, September 7th, 7:00pm
A photographic artist and filmmaker, Hannah Price is primarily interested in documenting relationships, race and gender politics, social perception, and misperception. Price’s new series, Semaphore is a collection of works that explore the overt and subtle ways we signal our identity to the world. Using elegant black and white portraits, video interviews, and text pieces, Price and her subjects share how they see themselves existing in the world in terms of race, gender, class, and power. Price’s perspective is tender and generous, allowing her viewers and her subjects ample room to wrestle with these sensitive and complex topics.
Price graduated from the Yale School of Art with an MFA in 2014, receiving the Richard Benson Prize for excellence in photography. Over the past six years, Price’s photographs have been displayed in several cities across the United States, with many residing in the permanent collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
