Chroma: Reframing Pluralism in Photographic Publications
Chroma is an exhibition and publications project of The Arts at CIIS that fosters pluralism in the field of photography and lens-based media by supporting the work of emerging and mid-career artists of African, Latino, Native American, Middle Eastern, North African, Asian, and Pacific Island heritage. We believe that culture is global, regional, and interpersonal; that we are all participants with a collective stake in the technological, creative, and communal forces that shape it.
THE CHROMA SERIES, an ambitious new publications project, is committed
to narratives and viewpoints oftentimes invisible within contemporary photobooks. Editor Carla Williams' body of work as artist, historian, and editor shows great understanding of pluralism with purpose. This series promises to mine the book form's potential for complexity and diversity.
