FEMALE SIGHT: A Women’s History Month Exhibition

Since the beginnings of photography in the mid-nineteenth century, women have had prominent roles as artists. The popularization of the medium in the first decades of the twentieth century met with a confluence of social forces, including art and activism, that expanded opportunities for women in both art and public life. Working in a range of styles, pioneering artists like Anna Atkins, Imogen Cunningham, Berenice Abbott and Carrie Mae Weems forged independent perspectives that changed how we picture the world. Praxis Gallery presents photographic art created by or about women image-makers, including trans-women and femme/ feminine-identifying, genderqueer, and non-binary lens-based photographic artists. SAT, 6 PM. Free.
