What's Gendered About Your Pics?

What we've got here is a bunch of pictures taken by 45 ladyfolk over the past 60 or so years, all exhibited together in the hope that their juxtaposition will reveal something interesting about the dynamic relationships among women, their worlds, the technology women use to document their worlds, and how those things change over time. According to the promos, the exhibit's aim "is to demonstrate what is particularly female in the capture and/or construction of a photographic image." Is there any such thing? Who knows? And who cares?! These are awesome photos! You've got yer Diane Arbuses. The cutesy-icy portraiture of Tina Barney. The ghost faces of Sally Mann, which look like demon-possessed daguerreotype! "Re-Framing the Feminine" is awesome stuff -- and it's viewable at the Girls Club Collection (117 NE Second St., Fort Lauderdale) through next September. Admission is free! Visit girlsclubcollection.org.
Wednesdays-Fridays. Starts: Nov. 30. Continues through Sept. 1, 2011
