Part of the
Frontier Studios Series
Frontier Studios is the non-profit arm of Frontier that continues our work as a community connector, curator, and catalyst; working collaboratively to incubate, design, and produce food, arts, and cultural projects that connect people to the world.
Please join us for an evening of mingling and discussion about Southgate Faces: Faces and Voices from an American Shipyard. The project features portraits and brief interviews with shipbuilders from Bath Iron Works, who were asked to step into a photo booth set up across from the Yard’s Southgate during their lunch break. Sixty-seven sound portraits were collected during 17 visits over the course of a year. The impetus for the project was to break down barriers between Bath residents and the large work force that moves in and out of the city during the Yard’s 3 daily shifts.
On November 28 2018, Southgate Faces creators Heather Perry (Photographer) and Hopper McDonough (Audiographer) will present a short video about the project genesis and evolution, followed by a short question and answer session. Please join us for mingling and light refreshments from 5:30 – 6:30 pm, followed by the presentation and discussion in the theater from 6:30 – 7 pm.
The portraits and context images from Southgate Faces are featured throughout the main dining room. There is also a kiosk where audio interviews and more content can be seen and heard.
