Add to Calendar 24-01-2013 26-05-2013 15 Women's Studies The late twentieth century has seen great strides for women working within visual mediums, yet the male gaze persists as the primary perspective from which women are considered -- and thus perceived - in film and art. This exhibition presents drawings and photographs of women by four self-taught artists from the1940s through the late twentieth century, two male, two female. Eugene Von Bruenchenhein, Paul D. Humphrey, Nellie Mae Rowe, and Inez Nathaniel Walker offer four very different approaches that raise questions of intent, portrayal, and self-identity: Are the portraits acts of creation or acts of documentation, mimesis or wish fulfillment? Are self-taught artists immune from the pervasive male gaze of mainstream artmaking spheres, or do they reflect a gender divide that still runs deeply within American society? http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=127084 American Folk Art Museum true DD/MM/YYYY
