Lobby Series: Women Shoot Women

Women Shoot Women:
Contemporary Interpretations of Formal Portraiture
April 4 - June 29, 2008 . On View 24/7
Curated by Karen Florek

The assumption still exists that portraits of women that are provocative or sexually charged must have been photographed by a man. Why else would a woman clad only in lingerie gaze so directly into the lens? Photographer Rachael Dunville confides that this happens to her all the time. "Oh you are the photographer?" surprised viewers ask. And why not a woman? The female artists in this exhibition, by boldly asking their subjects to show who they are, expose the desire, defiance, mystery and humor that run just below the surface of our lives.

"This is the year of the woman and we've worked hard to get here. In the early days of the 20th Century women couldn't go to art schools, they couldn't rent studios or get included in shows unless they changed their names. In this present photography show curated by Los Angeles photographer Karen Florek we see just how far women have come. These 12 photographers photographing other women, with both lust and passion, show we've come a long way."
-Molly Barnes, art dealer and radio personality.
