Genevieve Gaignard MFA ’14’s photography is currently on display at a temporary exhibition at Los Angeles’s 7th Street / Metro Center Station. Part of the LA Metro Lightbox Exhibition Program, the untitled exhibition intertwines issues of race, class and gender, and “is an investigation of the aesthetic and cultural divide between white and black, a chasm as palpable as it is ‘invisible.'”
As a biracial woman in America, Gaignard interrogates notions of “passing” by positioning her female body as the chief site of exploration—challenging viewers to navigate the power of anxieties within intersectional identity.
