About this EventAdd to calendar
Bokeh Focus’ spring 2021, 3D immersive virtual exhibit is a partnership between the education department of the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles and Bokeh Focus at the Center for Sustainable Journalism. We are collaborating on Getty’s Unshuttered program (supported by the Genesis Inspiration Foundation). This innovative multiyear, multiplatform photography program is a community for young artists that fuels their creative growth with direct access to artists, skill-building resources, curators and of course art.
Unshuttered’s overarching theme for 2020-21 is “In Pursuit of ___.” Our Bokeh Focus specific exhibit theme is “In Pursuit of JUSTICE.”
Bokeh Focus is also collaborating with VOX ATL, our Atlanta-based creative partner, to curate the photography for the exhibit. VOX ATL is running photography workshops for justice-involved youth in the youthSpark program in the early spring. Together we are producing a 3D immersive virtual exhibit in late spring using photographs by youth workshop participants.
Our exhibit livestream opening event is April 22 at 6 p.m. EST. The exhibit will also be highlighted within the Unshuttered online app and curated as part of future Unshuttered culminating events at the Getty Center in Los Angeles.
More about the Bokeh Focus’ creative partner: VOX ATL is leading a youth voice movement where teens from diverse backgrounds create a stronger, more equitable community through leadership and uncensored self-expression. Our vision is a culture where teens are creating, leading and thriving. VOX ATL is committed to amplifying the voices of the teens through youth development programming and intentional community partnerships. Please visit VOXATL.org for more about this nonprofit partner.
