TERRAINS OF THE BODY: PHOTOGRAPHY FROM NMWA @ WHITECHAPEL

Terrains of the Body: Photography from NMWA, is open to the public from 18 January through 16 April 2017 at Whitechapel Gallery. Terrains of the Body features photographs and a video created by seventeen contemporary artists from five continents.  The artists extend the scope of feminist performances, body art, and videos from the 1970s. In turning their cameras to women—including themselves—they embrace the female body as a practical and vital medium for expressing identity, reflecting individual and collective experiences, and forming narratives.
