What I Am Thinking About Now: Colleen Kim Daniher, "Racial Ambiguity as Performance in Gina Osterloh's Photographic Portraiture"
CSREA Conference Room, Hillel 303
Colleen Kim Daniher, Presidential Postdoctoral Fellow, Theatre Arts and Performance Studies
This talk considers the politics and aesthetics of performing racial ambiguity in Filipina-American artist Gina Osterloh's photographic portraiture. Through an analysis of pose, posture, and gesture in Osterloh's Shooting Blanks series (2008), Daniher offers some preliminary thoughts on why articulating racial ambiguity as strategic performance matters.
