The Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale | Nova Southeastern University
FOTO Fort Lauderdale
June 22 – October 6, 2013
In conjunction with the exhibition Bunny Yeager: Both Sides of the Camera, the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale presents an exhibition of photographs of women by women photographers. The exhibition includes approximately 40 photographs by 25 photographers and is drawn from public and private collections in South Florida. Dating from the 1950s to the present, the the photographs in the exhibition reveal how the explosive growth in numbers of women photographers since the 1950s, when Bunny Yeager herself was a pioneering photographer, has changed the way women are represented.
Among the photographers included in the exhibition are Diane Arbus, Cindy Sherman, Barbara Kruger, Shirin Neshat, Laurie Simmons, Annie Leibovitz, Barbara Probst and Lorna Simpson. Curated by Peter Boswell.
Foto Fort Lauderdale is an exciting series of high-caliber photographic exhibitions that give photography a permanent, year-round home at the Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale.
