Photography exhibition coming to the High Museum of Art honors women’s incredible influence on society and the art form.
Women have shaped the world of photography in its one hundred eighty-year history. Women practicing the art form have experimented with every aspect of the medium, and the High Museum of Atlanta is honoring that with its new exhibition.
Entitled Underexposed: Women Photographers From The Collection, the exhibition showcases more than one hundred photographs from the High’s collection. Many of them haven’t been shown in an exhibition space before.
Each section of the exhibition will emphasize a distinct arena in which women contributed and often led the way. Among the artists featured are pioneers of the medium such as Anna Atkins as well as more recent innovators and avid experimenters, including Betty Hahn, Barbara Kasten, and Meghann Riepenhoff.
The exhibition also celebrates the achievements of numerous professional photographers, including Berenice Abbott, Margaret Bourke-White, and Marion Post Wolcott.
There will also be a focus on photographers who photograph other women, children, and families. The ideals within will be questioned, as the artists challenge social constructions of gender, sexuality, and identity.
The exhibition Underexposed: Women Photographers From The Collection is organized by the High Museum of Art, Atlanta. It will be running from April 17-August 1.
