Jamie Diamond + cullen+them Mother Child Fundraising Initiative
In November 2015, young dance collective was invited to present The Family Project as a work in progress at MassMoCA. As part of the collaboration with MassMoCA, artist Jamie Diamond, known for her photographic representations of constructed families, directed a photo session in which the company members dressed as their mothers. The evening length piece, The Family Project explored themes including family dynamics, relationships, ancestry and life experience, and Jamie’s images captured its essence.
Now, with the second generation of YDC creating their final performance as a company, these images from one of their first performances are being used to fundraise for their last. Each print will be sold for $150 which can be sent via venmo to @cullenandthem. Please include your email address in the payment so that we may collect mailing addresses for shipping.
