“Stephanie Syjuco works in photography, sculpture, and installation, moving from handmade and craft-inspired mediums to digital editing and archive excavations,” said Michael Dickins, chair of the CECA Visiting Artist Speaker Series. “Using critical wit and collaborative co-creation, her projects leverage open-source systems, shareware logic, and flows of capital, in order to investigate issues of economies and empire.

“Recently, she has focused on how photography and image-based processes are implicated in the construction of racialized, exclusionary narratives of history and citizenship,” he added. “I am super excited to host her in what has been an excellent year for our Speaker Series.”

Syjuco’s lecture will be at 6:00pm Monday, April 5th, via Zoom. Registration is required and is available at

The lecture is free and open to the public.
