Exhibition Dates: January 20 - February 28, 2020

The Art & Design Department and the Saab Center for Portuguese Studies at UMass Lowell announce a show of selected student artworks from the Spring 2019 study abroad trip to the Azorean Islands. The works are from the Documentary Image course organized by Anna Isaak-Ross and Pavel Romaniko. The course explored Lowell’s Azorean diaspora's origins, heritage, experience and culture. The course served as a springboard for photographic exploration of three islands in archipelago. Readings, discussions, engagement with the community, and technical instruction conveyed the concepts of objectivity and the documentary image, and how to tell other people’s stories. The thirty-one photographs in this exhibition are the result of that exploration.

The exhibition is made possible by generous support from UMass Lowell’s Saab Center of Portuguese Studies, the Saab Endowment for Portuguese Studies, the College of Fine Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences Dean’s Office and the Art & Design Department..

Featured Artists:

Hayley Andrade, Cameron Blanchard, Morgan Clarke, Sebastian Diaz, Andrew Fournier, Chelsea Gray, Anna Isaak-Ross, Daniel Junta, Lindsey Napolitano, Julia Renaghan, Chummeng Soun
