Untitled #2 from The Foggy Night series


January 19 – April 7, 2016

Guest Curator: Jonell Logan

Lilith as an exhibition explores work by select women photographers who question conventional narratives of masculinity, identity, sexuality, and power. Guia Besana and Donna Cooper Hurt use the body, objects, and their environment to expand conventional definitions of nurturing, beauty, and femininity to include the realities of contemporary life. Allison Janae Hamilton and Maxine Helfman challenge our linear—and often restricted—considerations of history and culture. Jodi Bieber challenges the paradigm of masculinity by photographing men in repose—a position often associated with female subjects—as opposed to the active and dynamic posturing associated with maleness.
