The Fall 2015 edition of InsideART focuses on the USFCAM exhibition A Family Affair.
A Family Affair presents seven artists who explore personal identity and family relationships through photography, video, performance and animation: Renee Cox, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Kalup Linzy, Jacolby Satterwhite, Hank Willis Thomas, Corine Vermeulen and Deborah Willis. Adopting a range of approaches from documentary to fiction, they articulate visions of self situated within interpersonal and historical family contexts as well as broader social frameworks of race, class and gender, often working in collaboration with family members to realize their art. During the exhibition Corine Vermeulen will be in residence and undertake a three-month community-based project in collaboration with the University Area Community Development Corporation, photographing residents of the University Area community adjacent to USF in exchange for stories of neighborhood and family life. A Family Affair is curated by Megan Voeller and organized by USFCAM. The exhibition catalogue for A Family Affair is supported by a grant from the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation. Corine Vermeulen’s residency is supported by Caspers Company and Sharmila and Vivek Seth.
