'Camera Women' exhibition on display at Art Museum
Posted October 1, 2001; 04:46 p.m.
"Camera Women," a survey of photography by women, is on view at the Art Museum from Oct. 6 through Jan. 6. The selection of photographers' works ranges from 19th-century "lady amateurs," to snap-shooting chroniclers of family, to today's social observers.
Special events related to the exhibition include a gallery talk by Carol Armstrong, the Doris Stevens Professor in Women's Studies and professor of art and archaeology at Princeton, who organized the exhibition. Her talk takes place at the Art Museum at 12:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26, and at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 28.
Also planned in connection with the exhibition is a conference on "Women Artists at the Millennium" on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 9 and 10, in McCormick 101. The conference is sponsored by the Program in the Study of Women and Gender and the Department of Art and Archaeology.
The exhibition, which evolved out of Armstrong's fall 2000 seminar "Women in Photography," is drawn primarily from the museum's collection. It will travel to the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center at Vassar College from Jan. 25 through March 24.
