Art & Photography Monday: MoMA Exhibit

-Ilse Bing, "Self-Portrait in Mirrors"

Being a fan of photography – and being a woman – I am so excited about the new exhibit that just opened this weekend at the MoMA in NYC entitled “Pictures by Women: A History of Modern Photography”.  Despite the fact that I love looking at photos, I am very bad at remembering the names of photographers unless they are one of the superstars.  Blame it on my goldfish brain (thank you for that phrase, Remi) that just seems to get worse with every birthday.  So this exhibit is perfect as it’s not only a conglomeration of the best woman photographers but the museum also has several dates for “Gallery Talks” about the exhibit.  So if you live in NYC or are traveling there soon please note the specific dates and times below:

Saturday, May 22nd @ 11:30am
Saturday, May 29th @ 1:30pm
Wednesday, June 9th @ 12:30pm

What a great way to spend a couple of hours, eh?  Learning more about all of the photographers whose work you just admired.

What I also love is that this exhibit will run through March 21, 2011 so there are no excuses not to see it.

  1. Well I would love to attend this exhibition. I recently wrote an article on the photograph taken by women, although in this case seems to be that women are the target of the picture (probably made by men and women). Also recently attended a photographic exhibition of the master Joao Roberto Ripper, whose topic was women.

    • Thank you for the comment. I would love to read your article although I can’t read Portuguese 🙂 If you have it in English, please forward a link to me!
