Akemi Hiatt

Program Associate at the Center for Photography at Woodstock

Akemi Hiatt is the Program Associate at the Center for Photography at Woodstock, an artist-centered organization founded in 1977, where she works to implement CPW’s year-round program offerings, including exhibitions, artists workspace residencies, workshops, lectures, publication, fellowships, services for artists, and more. She has been a portfolio reviewer for CPW at numerous public events, as well as reviewed at ICP’s annual Career Day and the Society for Photographic Education Conference, and been an invited speaker at the Schenectady Photographic Society. Curatorial endeavors at CPW include To Feel Authentic, Becoming Muses, and Surface Tension (2012). A visual artist herself, Hiatt’s work was most recently exhibited at bookMARKS presented by Light Work and the Society for Photographic Education and published in the online magazine Awosting Alchemy, a Hudson Valley journal of words and art. She graduated from New York University, where she tailored her curriculum around photography, journalism, and media studies.

She is interested in seeing a broad spectrum of genres or styles of photography and conceptually cohesive photo-based projects including film, video, and web-based works. Since CPW does not present traditional landscape, floral, or nude photography, she would prefer not to review such work.
