The Newcomb Art Department’s Carroll Gallery presents MUSE, an exhibition of photographic portraits of women by four American female photographers: Tanyth Berkeley, Katy Grannan, Eve Fowler and Dana Hoey.
The exhibition is open and runs through Feb. 12.
All four artists will visit Tulane University to participate in a symposium on the aesthetics and politics of gender representation on Thursday, Jan. 21st from 6:30-8:00 pm in Freeman Auditorium, Woldenberg Art Center. A reception for the artists will immediately follow in Carroll Gallery from 8:00-10:00pm.
Significant to all four artists’ exhibited projects is the collaborative relationship between the artist and her subject. The photographs by these artists consistently employ alternative approaches to the representation of women resulting in images that force the viewer to question how the female form has been objectified by artists and popular culture throughout history.
