As a women-led organisation, we are excited to partner with Women Photographers International Archive (WOPHA) and participate in Women, Photography and Feminisms, a two day Congress taking place at Pérez Art Museum, Miami on 18 and 19 November.
The WOPHA Congress seeks to create a critical space for photography by bringing together leading women photography organisations, artists, art historians, theorists, and curators who aim to build upon and better represent the dynamic history of women photographers from the nineteenth century through today.
The two-day in-person and virtual public program invites all to the lens of women and non-binary practitioners who are leading the sea change in photography’s symbiotic relationship to identity and image.
Photoworks Director, Shoair Mavlian will be taking part on the Panel Discussion This Is Not an Archival Object on 19 November. The Panel interrogates the Archive as a space interconnected to racial capitalism, the establishment of settler-colonial states, and the sexual division of labor, from its inception.Learn more about WOPHA Congress: Women, Photography and Feminisms
