Wedge Curatorial Projects is pleased to showcase Fissure, a solo presentation of work by Ayana V. Jackson, and a Primary Exhibition of CONTACT Photography Festival. Employing her own body, Jackson deconstructs racial and gender stereotypes to create contemporary portraits laced with historical allusions. Deeply influenced by her own fluid identity and her transcontinental practice Jackson’s images crystallize African and diasporic realities while challenging a fraught legacy of pictorial representation.
