PHOTOCULTURE Conversations Episode #9: Michelle Dunn Marsh

By Paula Ely

Curator of All Power: Visual Legacies of the Black Panther Party. "We have to be willing to be a little bit uncomfortable and that's hard to ask people to do. It’s a great privilege to curate a show or to edit a book.  It’s a privilege that I occupy this space. And it’s also a responsibility."

Michelle Dunn Marsh is the founder of Minor Matters Books, and Executive Director at Photographic Center Northwest

Over the last twenty years she has connected audiences with practitioners of contemporary art, particularly photography, through publications and public programming.

She studied literature and art history at Bard College, and completed an MS in Publishing from Pace University. She has lectured at Parsons/The New School, Yale University, The University of Washington, and at various regional and national photography events. 

The exhibition All Power: Visual Legacies of the Black Panther Party, curated by Ms. Marsh, was featured at The 2018 Photography Show (AIPAD) in New York.  We spoke on April 6, 2018 in the exhibition space.
