The Museum of Modern Art Presents, “Our Selves: Photographs By Women Artists From Helen Kornblum” April 16 - October 2
The Museum of Modern Art will present, Our Selves: Photographs by Women Artists from Helen Kornblum, at The Museum of Modern Art from April 16th through October 2nd on the Fifth Floor. The exhibition will include 90 photographic works by female artists from the last 100 years.
Drawn exclusively from the Museum’s collection, thanks to a transformative gift of photographs from Helen Kornblum in 2021, the exhibition takes as a starting point the idea that the histories of feminism and photography have been intertwined. Rather than presenting a chronological history of women photographers or a linear account of feminist photography, the exhibition prompts new appraisals and compelling dialogues from a contemporary, intersectional feminist perspective.
African-diasporic, queer, and postcolonial/Indigenous artists have brought new mindsets and questions to the canonical narratives of art history. Our Selves will reexamine a host of topics, countering racial and gender invisibility, systemic racial injustice, and colonialism, through a diversity of photographic practices, including portraiture, photojournalism, social documentary, advertising, avant-garde experimentation, and conceptual photography. Highlighting both iconic and rare or lesser-known images, the exhibition’s groupings and juxtapositions of modern and contemporary works will encourage unexpected connections in the Museum’s fifth-floor collection galleries, which are typically devoted to art from the 1880s through the 1940s.
Venue: Museum of Modern Art
11 West 53rd Street, between 5th and 6th Avenues
