TPS National Photography Award
TPS National Photography Award winner Jaclyn Wright's solo exhibition Marked will open March 7, 2020 at the Sabine Street Studios in Houston, Texas. TPS National Photography Award is included in FotoFest 2020 Biennial Participating Spaces. Please join Wright and juror Natasha Egan at the TPS opening reception on Tuesday, March 10, 2020 from 6-8 p.m.
Wright was born with a large birthmark on the right side of her neck that has drawn scrutiny and abuse from strangers. Wright initiated Marked as a way to reclaim her birthmark as a symbol of empowerment instead of trauma. Marked incorporates digital processes, performance and sculpture. Reproductions of the birthmark's shape and color appear throughout the work.
