Underexposed: Women Photographers from the Collection
High Museum of Art
April 17-August 1
Panel with Joni Sternbach, Myra Green, Maria Kelly and Meghann Riepenhoff
May 13, 6pm EST
For nearly all of photography’s one hundred eighty-year history, women have shaped the development of the art form and experimented with every aspect of the medium. Conceived in conjunction with the centennial of the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment, which granted suffrage for some women, this exhibition showcases more than one hundred photographs from the High’s collection, many of them never before on view, and charts the medium’s history from the dawn of the modern period to the present through the work of women photographers. I’m very excited to be on a panel on May 13th with Myra Green, Joni Sternbach, and Maria Kelly, and to be included in the exhibition with artists like Zanele Muholi, Cindy Sherman, Mickalene Thomas, Anna Atkins, Berenice Abbott, and Carrie Mae Weems.

The Photograph As Contemporary Art
Thames & Hudson
In the twenty-first century, photography has come of age as a contemporary art form. Almost two centuries after photographic technology was first invented, the art world has fully embraced it as a legitimate medium, equal in status to painting and sculpture. The Photograph as Contemporary Art introduces the extraordinary range of contemporary art photography, from portraits of intimate life to highly staged directorial spectacles. I am so honored to be in the 4th edition of this paramount text.
Lay of the Land – Women in Photography
Informality Gallery October 15-Nov 24
Informality Gallery and co-curator and artist Virginia Woods-Jack considered the idea of “Mother Nature”, a personification that asserts the power of women and the natural world; the exhibition features twelve women artists who have used photo-media to consider the environment.
Available for preorder now
Element features Matthew Brandt, Chris McCaw and Meghann Riepenhoff. Allowing natural elements to inform and influence the image, these artists move beyond the camera to explore the relationship between the image and the environment. In response to our work, Jon Mooallem writes, “We are living in a moment when the kind of rigid and meticulous order-making that I’ve always fallen back on has started to feel quixotic and futile, or even destructive sometimes—when it seems necessary to pick apart the rules and conventions we take for granted and evaluate which ones are elemental and which are merely habit. I’ll be here: listening and thinking through all of it, shaking my fist, relearning how to speak.”
