About This Event

June T Sanders will be describing her most recent body of work ‘Easy World,’ as well as her overall artistic practice & portraiture ethos. June T Sanders’ photographic work is an invitation to the limits of visibility: Through careful and collaborative moments combined with unreliable equipment - she constructs a landscape of bodies both shielded and confrontational. Her portraits are instances of endearment and discretion. Of Trans-Poetics. A moment and an identity hinted towards but not fully captured.

About the Speaker: June T Sanders is a trans artist, curator, and educator living in rural Eastern WA. She is an Assistant Professor with the Digital Technology & Culture Department at Washington State University, and a recent recipient of the 2020 Blue Sky Curatorial Prize and the New Hampshire Institute of Art Teti Research Fellowship. She has also taught at Lightwork & the New York State Summer School of the Arts. Her work has been shown at the Colorado Photographic Arts Center (Denver), Amos Eno Gallery (Brooklyn), Tropical Contemporary (Portland), The Bob Mizer Foundation, The Longwood Center for the Visual Arts, and Lawrence University — and has appeared in Vice, Paper Journal, Leste Magazine, Humble Arts Foundation, Strange Fire Collective, and Physique Pictorial. Her images reflect a world yet to be.
