Women in Photography 2018 | Curator & Artist Tour
Fri, 5 Oct 2018, 530pm to 630pm
With the backdrop of collective movements like #MeToo and #TimesUp gaining momentum in the past year, the fourth edition of Objectifs’ Women in Film and Photography takes on the theme of COLLECTIVE POWER. We turn our spotlight to photographers and filmmakers who seek to empower and effect change within and across communities through their work.
The photographers examine issues ranging from the impact of the ethnic cleansing campaign against the Rohingyas in Myanmar, to the role of literacy in the enrichment of Arab women’s lives, and the objectification of women and the body. Their intimate yet powerful stories about specific communities deal with critical issues such politics, gender, sexuality, cultural identity and oppression. Through these images, these photographers make bold statements about the societies in which they live and work.
Join us for a guided tour with some of the artists featured in the exhibition, including Izumi Miyazki, Haley Morris-Cafiero, Wong Maye-E and Kristen Gelineau, together with curator for the exhibition, Emmeline Yong.
