The first image I will show my Graduate Seminar @ufsaah is “Strange Fruit (She He),” 2015 by Torkwase Dyson. In this series Dyson’s mark-making represents the thousands of known lynchings that took place between 1882 and 1968. Grads will be looking at Dyson’s work as we research the documentation of disturbing histories and urgent issues through abstraction.

Starting the year in B&W Photography at #ufsaah with a detail of Park McArthur’s “Overlook Park 1-5,” 2017. Recently included in her SFMOMA solo exhibition, the series of photographs register her shifting perspectives of a picnic table. This work is inspiring students with their first project on the politics of documentation, representation, and access.

#firstdayfirstimage asks artist-educators to actively rethink the canons they create for their curriculums starting with the first image shown to students on the first day of class. By centering voices long under-examined as the first image discussed in the classroom, including but not limited to female artists, artists of color, LGBTQ artists, and indigenous artists, we accept responsibility to expand the histories we create. By hashtagging and broadcasting our chosen first image as #firstdayfirstimage we create an exchange of ideas on what these new histories might look like.

My incredible student Leda Balch is graduating today with a BFA and the Fall 2017 Two-Year Scholar Award. @2leda hell yeah, so proud!
