2017 Festival / Just the Facts

In 2017, the festival grew, and Hudson Hall had one and a half times the foot traffic than the same span of weeks previously. Running August 12-September 30, much of the work had not been seen in the U.S. in its current form, and included a site-specific installation by Zoe Strauss & Stacy Kranitz, and multimedia work by Brenda Kenneally, Masterji, Phyllis Dooney, and Annu Palakunnathu Matthew. We expanded our Young Photographers Workshop to 3 days, and as in 2016, included and celebrated the images that girls made in our main exhibit.

Titled “Just the Facts,” the art, talks, and screenings touched on themes of desire, belonging, home, history, and individual agency.
