Memory is a Verb Exhibition Reception

Join us for an evening celebration of Memory is a Verb in the DCP Community Gallery commemorating the group's installation opening to our North Texas community!

This event was held April 15, 2023

Join us in the DCP gallery on Saturday, April 15 from 6pm-8pm as we celebrate the artist collective, Memory is a Verband the opening of their major Dallas photographic installation. This reception is open to all and free to attend!

Memory is a Verb: Exploring Time and Transience presents the work of 11 female photographers investigating time, transience, and loss. Collectively they celebrate our shared humanity, profoundly influencing how we see ourselves and others. After these past few years of uncertainty and grief, this exhibition maps a way forward toward communal understanding and healing.” – Emily Edwards, Curator

Through the artistic expression found in Memory is a Verb, this group of creators from different geographies, experiences, and backgrounds, give voice not only to their reality, but to the multitude of perspectives and possibilities contained within. It is a universal desire to be connected and remembered – to honor our past into our future.  The search for meaning during a time of profound disruption is a humbling human journey eloquently captured in this timely installation.

Distinct experiences compelled these women to reclaim their histories. The journey of encouragement and growth comes to the Dallas Center for Photography. Now more than ever, it is important to highlight women’s visual narratives and continue the long history of women photographers telling their stories their way. With the advent of digital technologies and the world wide web in the 21st century, photography has remained a significant tool of self-determination.
