Stephanie Syjuco will deliver a public lecture as the fall 2021 Arthur L. and Sheila Prensky Island Press Visiting Artist.
Syjuco works in photography, sculpture, and installation, moving from handmade and craft-inspired mediums to digital editing and archive excavations. Using critical wit and collaborative co-creation, her projects leverage open-source systems, shareware logic, and flows of capital, in order to investigate issues of economies and empire. Recently, she has focused on how photography and image-based processes are implicated in the construction of racialized, exclusionary narratives of history and citizenship. For 2019/2020 she is a Smithsonian Artist Research Fellow at the National Museum of American History in Washington DC. She is featured in Season 9 of the acclaimed PBS documentary series Art21: Art in the Twenty-First Century. Recent exhibitions include Being: New Photography at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Public Knowledge at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Stephanie Syjuco: Rogue States at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis; and Disrupting Craft: the 2018 Renwick Invitational at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
