Gallery 5 seeks to engage the larger art community of Boston and vicinity with the goal of positioning Emmanuel College as a viable and significant participant in contemporary art. With its active exhibition schedule, opening receptions, and artist talks, Gallery 5 actively engages the discourse of contemporary art with the goal of introducing this discourse to the Emmanuel College community and beyond.
Gallery 5 provides an essential exhibition space for the Emmanuel College Art Department. The Gallery is consistently active with exhibitions of work by professional artists, emerging artists, artist residents, outsider artists and Emmanuel College art students and alumni. The Gallery is utilized by faculty throughout the year as an educational tool that supports their teaching through the organizing of exhibitions with themes that are directly related to Art Department course content.
The Pride Revolution
February 27 - April 13
What is pride? This is a question to which the answer is as fluid as emotions themselves. Pride has many layers; it is a universal human feeling directly related to the perception of one self.
The Pride Revolution is a project that was born in June 2016 when I had the chance to work during the summer on a photographic project funded by Emmanuel College in Boston.
This project was done in collaboration with different queer activists, artists, friends, strangers and family departing from asking a simple question: what does pride means to you?
My aim with this project is to explore a different perspective from the stereotypical imagery we are constantly bombarded by mainstream media, which records the inequality of gender relations and a stereotypical and misleading portray of the LGBT community worldwide.
I combined these pictures with extracts of interviews and made them into posters that were pasted all over Boston and Quito in the public space.
My goal is simple: to use photography as a tool to advocate for fundamental human rights for a community that is still oppressed and persecuted all over the world.
