When: Sat., Sept. 18, 11 a.m.-12 p.m. 2021
Jess T. Dugan is an artist whose work explores issues of identity—particularly gender and sexuality—through photographic portraiture. Drawing from their experience as a queer, nonbinary person, Dugan’s work continually investigates what it means to live authentically and how visual representation plays a powerful role in that process. Dugan was the 2020–2021 Henry L. and Natalie E. Freund Teaching Fellow at the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis, and their work is featured in Currents 120. The exhibition is sponsored in part by the Henry L. and Natalie E. Freund Endowment Fund.
