About the Book
Exhibition catalog for Signal Boost, curated by Jordan Rockford and Rafael Soldi at NAPOLEON, presented by Strange Fire Collective. In the last decade, social media platforms have quickly become engines for amplification, allowing organizing and sharing of messages on a global scale. This new tool, signal-boosting, has proven to be both conducive of change, and catastrophic to our democracy. Strange Fire Collective has used its platform and reach to signal-boost relevant work made by women, people of color, and queer and trans artists, writers, and curators who reflect our time. Signal Boost presents three photographers from the Strange Fire archive whose work speaks to the Society for Photographic Education’s 2018 National Conference theme, Uncertain Times: Borders, Refuge, Community, Nationhood. Artists Lorenzo Triburgo, Zora J. Murff, and Juan C. Giraldo explore questions of migration, identity, borders, and how we occupy space as fellow citizens in this country.
