Why is art so compelling? The fact that so many of us take or make pictures, more often than not daily basis, has not depleted the magic of art and photography whether they be personal snapshots or artworks displayed in a gallery. Pictures make us feel something, whether that's something posted on social media that makes us laugh out loud or an image from history; we are captivated.
Art History: Women & their role in Photography chronicles a segmented history of extraordinary pictures made through artistic and photographic means. There are many important artworks in both public and private collections across the world, and yet few were made with exhibition in mind. This piece is structured around the key developments, subjects and themes of art history, amid a developing world of conceptualisation. The latter content will focus upon women and their role throughout art history and how it has changed and developed and what means allowed for so. Focusing more towards photography, yet remaining relevant to art on a whole, the exhibition will look closely into the realm of women and their adapting position within art and society.
