About

Archival pigment print Signed and numbered, verso 22.5 x 30 inches, image (Edition of 5 + 2 APs) 33.75 x 45 inches, image (Edition of 3 + 1 AP) From the series, "The Silence of Spaces" This photograph is offered by ClampArt, located in New York City. Please note that prices increase as editions sell. Lissa Rivera writes: “'The Silence of Spaces' is a personal reckoning with the inescapable connections between religious faith, gender, and the body. The series is set in an isolated religious complex that has been home to multiple belief systems, with layers of history as palpable as its peeling layers of paint. Constructed as a male-only Catholic seminary, it has also been, at various times, a public junior high, an ‘alternative’ medicine resort, and the center of an evangelical ministry dedicated to promoting sexual purity for adolescent girls. The project’s portraits of myself and my partner BJ build on my previous series, 'Beautiful Boy,' an investigation of feminine imagery from across the history of photography and cinema. Set in a series of ambiguous, often charged spaces that betray a multiplicity of pasts, the photographs explore the tension between the inherent shame that surrounds the feminine body in our culture, the literal deification of masculinity that frequently accompanies it, and the beauty and surprising androgyny of much religious imagery.” Lissa Rivera is a photographer and curator based in Brooklyn, NY. Rivera received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts, where she became fascinated with the social history of photography and the evolution of identity, sexuality and gender in relationship to material culture. ‘Beautiful Boy,’ Rivera’s latest project, takes her interest in photography’s connection with identity to a personal level, focusing on her domestic partner as muse. Selected press includes The New York Times, Artforum, The Guardian, Harper’s Bazaar, PAPER, The Boston Globe, and Photograph Magazine among many others. Rivera was chosen as a “Woman to Watch” for the biennial exhibition at the National Museum of Woman in Arts. Selected honors include the Griffin Museum’s Peter Urban Legacy Award; Feature Shoot’s Emerging Photography Award; Photographic Resource Center’s Exposure 2016; D&AD’s Next Photographer Shortlist; and the Magnum Photography Award for Portraiture. Permanent collections include Museum of Fine Arts Houston; Danforth Museum; and Newport Art Museum. Since 2016, Rivera has curated and produced six exhibitions for the Museum of Sex, with a focus on modern and contemporary art. Rivera strives to include traditionally underrepresented voices regardless of formal education or exhibition history. Rivera's most recent curatorial effort, ‘Leonor Fini: Theatre of Desire 1930-1990,’ is the first US Museum survey dedicated to Fini. Rivera served as curator for ‘Canon: Juan Jose Barboza-Gubo & Andrew Mroczek;’ ‘Night Fever: New York Disco 1977–1979, The Bill Bernstein Photographs;’ co-curator of ‘Punk Lust: Raw Provocation 1971-1985;’ and ‘NSFW: Female Gaze;’ and producer of ‘Known/Unknown: Private Obsession and Hidden Desire in Outsider Art.’ In 2018, Rivera was invited to be guest juror for the Field Projects gallery open call.
