Global Perspectives on The New Woman Behind the Camera
In conjunction with the major exhibition The New Woman Behind the Camera, this two-day symposium examines the global presence of women photographers from the 1920s to the 1950s. Artists, historians, and curators reflect critically on women photographers’ capacity to challenge established ideas of gender and identity during this tumultuous period. Covering a variety of photographic approaches, speakers consider how the extraordinary social and political conditions of the era shaped individual practices.
This program is made possible by the James D. and Kathryn K. Steele Fund for Photography.
