Jordan Rockford BFA '00 (Photography), a lecturer and academic advisor in the University's Photography department, is the curator of the Equality Forum's 14th Annual LGBT Art Exhibit. Co-sponsored by the William Way LGBT Community Center and Miller Rothlein, the 2013 exhibit features the work of Cambodian artist and curator Vuth Lyno and will be on display April 8 through May 5 at the William Way Center (1315 Spruce Street, Philadelphia).
Vuth will present a free and open-to-the public lecture on his work on Thursday, May 2 at 11:30 a.m. at the University of the Arts (Terra Hall, 211 S. Broad St., Room 1504). A reception will be held at the William Way Center on Thursday, May 2 from 5 to 7 p.m.
Entitled "Thoamada" after a Khmer expression meaning "the usual," this is the first U.S. exhibit for Vuth and includes work from two photographic series exploring LGBT identity and community in Cambodia.
Vuth is a founding member of the art collective Stiev Selapak (Art Rebels) and the director of the dynamic community-focused art centre Sa Sa Art Projects. He will serve as curatorial assistant for the Season of Cambodia festival's Visual Art: In Residence program, which takes place this April and May in New York City. In the fall, Vuth will take up a Fulbright Fellowship in the U.S.
