From Nov 6, 2011 through Sept 30, 2012.
Re-Framing the Feminine demonstrates the varied strategies employed by female photographers to frame their experiences using the technology of film photography and digital media. Curated by Dina Mitrani, Miami-based photography curator and gallerist, Re-Framing the Feminine will include approximately fifty works.
Its aim is to demonstrate what is particularly female in the capture and/or construction of a photographic image. The fluidity women experience as both subjects and objects in the photographic field is significant.
A catalog with an essay by writer and lecturer Vicki Goldberg will accompany this exhibition which defines women as dynamic image makers using a medium in relentless flux.
Artists included in the exhibition are Julie Blackmon, Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, Rineke Dijkstra, GisMO, Nan Goldin, Courtney Johnson, Brenda Anne Kenneally, Sally Mann, Lori Nix, Peggy Levison Nolan, Catherine Opie, Kristine Potter, Cindy Sherman, Zoe Strauss, Mickalene Thomas, Jo Ann Walters, Gillian Wearing and others.
Re-Framing the Feminine Events

First film up, photographer Cindy Sherman’s directorial effort, Office Killer, made in 1997 and a cult hit.
