LOOK NOW: Facing Breast Cancer
October 8 – October 31, 2018
Gallery Talk & Opening Reception: October 11, 5-8pm
Look Now: Facing Breast Cancer breaks down the barriers between a survivor’s
public persona and their private struggles with the disease. In 2010, Tula
Goenka, herself a breast cancer survivor, was the first of three subjects to be
photographed for a prototype of the project. She has relaunched Look Now
as a photography exhibition and multimedia installation with a new collaborative team. Cindy Bell, also a breast cancer survivor, is the project photographer.
In 2018-19, Look Now focuses on the personal stories of survivors from Central New York. Interactive text, graphics, mirrors, and an experimental film enhance the exhibition’s visual core, which presents 44 participants—25 with clothed photographic portraits and images of bare chests, and 19 who have chosen to remain anonymous except for their bare-chest close-ups.
Look Now is part of Syracuse University’s Syracuse Symposium, whose theme in 2018-19 is Stories, an exploration of how we tell them and what effects whose stories we hear.
The Point of Contact Gallery is a member of the Coalition of Museum & Art Centers at Syracuse University (CMAC), and it is located at 350 W Fayette Street, Syracuse, NY 13202.
Gallery Hours: The gallery is open Monday-Friday, 12-5 PM to the general public or by appointment. Please come in to see our current exhibitions!
