"The Female Lens" seeks to explore how the female gaze informs the construction of images and the construction of identity. The images included in this show seek to explore how women see women and to interrogate ideas of femininity, camaraderie, gender, privilege, oppression as well as the other themes that women navigate consciously or unconsciously on a near-daily basis.
The choice to focus exclusively on female photographers facilitates a discussion of the role of women in art history, but also in the creation, performance, direction, and expression of femininity, gender, identity, and gaze. This exhibition strives to be intersectional while acknowledging that no one exhibition can exhaust these themes. Our exhibition features work by cis and trans women of a variety of ages and nationalities. The conversation created by and between the works of The Female Lens begins to probe the themes of gender and identity, and challenge outdated understandings of the male and female gaze.
Artists exhibited include Charlotte Abramow, Diane Arbus, Arvida Bystrom, Zackary Drucker, Maryam Eisler, Yagazie Emezi, Frances Goodman, Rania Matar, and Shirin Neshat.
