[E11] BLACK RODEO
Opening Reception: Friday, November 3rd, 6-9pm 428 Waller Street, San Francisco
DOG is proud to present a new book release and photo exhibition by Tricia Turner.
Black Rodeo is a celebration of Black Americana, inspired by the social narratives and history of African-American heritage and cowboys in rodeo culture.
Captured over the past two years while traveling across California and the American Southwest, Turner’s series depicts the culture, lifestyle, and pride of lifelong rodeo cowboys and their generational legacy, with a dedication to early predecessors like Myrtis Dightman, the first African-American to break the color barrier and compete at the National Finals Rodeo.
Deconstructing the myth of the American cowboy and negative stereotypes surrounding Black masculinity and fatherhood, Black Rodeo is a visual anthology that looks into the past while documenting what each subject hopes to carry into the future—stylistically referencing the iconic visual tropes and imagery of the American West.
Tricia Turner is an advertising and editorial photographer working in the U.S. She has collaborated with numerous publications and brands including Vogue Italia, Harper’s Bazaar, The New York Times, Levi’s, and Gap.
Limited copies of the book will be available for sale. To receive an advanced copy of the pricelist, please email email@example.com.
Black Rodeo was designed by Landscape as part of an ongoing pro-bono initiative to support Black-owned businesses, which commenced in late 2020.
Visiting hours are from Thursday-Saturday 12–5pm and by appointment.
