Lee Miller’s Photographs Frame the Women of World War II

Lee Miller’s Photographs Frame the Women of World War II | Olimpiabineschi | Scoop.it

" A Lee Miller photograph often tells more than one story. Like Miller herself — a former model and Surrealist muse who became a correspondent documenting the Second World War — the photos are multifaceted. They’re expressive but also unsentimental, playful yet dark. An exhibition of her wartime photography at London’s Imperial War Museum, Lee Miller: A Woman’s War, traces narratives large and small to show how women’s societal roles were altered by the war, and how her own professional and personal lives were severely disturbed by its horrors."


Lee Miller: A Woman’s War continues at the London Imperial War Museum (Lambeth Road) through April 24.

“A Room With A View”: 6 female photographers in Hong Kong | Art Radar

“A Room With A View”: 6 female photographers in Hong Kong | Art Radar | Olimpiabineschi | Scoop.it

The photography exhibition “A Room With A View” runs at the Koo Ming Kown Exhibition Gallery, Hong Kong Baptist University’s Academy of Visual Arts until 8 November 2015. Curated by Carol Chow Pui Ha, the show features works by six female artists who use photography and its unique ability to capture and even reconstruct presence to re-enliven their city’s subsumed narratives.

 

Since the Handover, forces in Hong Kong society, including globalisation and the fight for democracy, have continued to muddle many aspects of the city’s history and memory.

Arushee Suri, 2014-15 memories of a mild and gentle breeze and the smell of rain


"[...]‘Lifting the Veil’ is not aiming to make a statement about what it is to be a female artist in our contemporary society, but rather looks at a selected group of artists from very different cultures and backgrounds in order to examine if there is a common sensibility that links their practices, even though their narrative concerns vary greatly."
