TERRAINS OF THE BODY: PHOTOGRAPHY FROM NMWA @ WHITECHAPEL

Terrains of the Body: Photography from NMWA, 18 January through 16 April 2017 at Whitechapel Gallery, featured photographs and a video created by seventeen contemporary artists from five continents.  The works shown form an essential part of the story of women and art.  By aiming their cameras at the female body (including their own), the artists embrace the figure's singular ability for expressing identity, reflecting individual and collective experiences, and forming narratives. This partnership with the Whitechapel Gallery enabled their stories - and that of NMWA to be shared with museum visitors far beyond Washington D.C.
