Another Way of Telling: Women Photographers from the Collection

April 8–July 16, 2017

See the myriad ways women have used the camera to capture lived experience.

In our current season of civil protest in which women are at the forefront, asserting their voices, it seems appropriate and timely to explore work by several generations of women photographers. On view in this exhibition are exceptional and rare photographs spanning the history of the medium, including examples by pioneers Diane Arbus, Julia Margaret Cameron, and Anne Brigman and contemporary artists Kelli Connell, Ann Parker, and Elaine Stocki.

In this diverse selection of pictures, women explore ideas about identity in and out of the studio, interrogate female roles in the domestic sphere, and disrupt perceptions of the world through street photography. By including over a dozen new acquisitions, this exhibition also demonstrates our ongoing efforts to more fully represent women artists in the collection and amplify their voices.

In 2014, Price graduated from the Yale University School of Art’s MFA photography program, receiving the Richard Benson Prize for excellence in photography. Over the past six years, Price’s photos have been exhibited in several cities across the United States. A few of her works are part of the permanent collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
