Cheryl Dunye Characteristics
Cheryl Dunye is a Philadelphia-based video artist whose work explores issues of race, class, gender, and sexual orientation. Combining intensely personal accounts with humor, Dunye's videos are engaging and provocative, revealing the complexities and struggles she has faced, as well as her happiness and pride, in being an African-American lesbian. Her work is characteristically postmodern in the self-referential disclosing of Dunye's role as both actor and director.
