From Mark Feeney’s article reviewing the Photographic Resource Center’s 20th anniversary exhibition, “Exposure,” including artworks by Lissa Rivera:
Juried shows are naturally various. That would seem especially in the nature of this year’s “Exposure,” with its having so many cooks and double the photographic ingredients. Sometimes chance has other plans. A couple of themes, identity and memory, predominate. The fact that memory has so much to do with identity means that there’s a nice overlap between the two. … Rivera plays with ideas of sexual identity and presentation through portraits of her genderqueer partner. Rivera’s “Motel,” ups the layering ante: It could be a colorized outtake from Cindy Sherman’s “Film Stills” series.
