Photography by Women Artists, focused entirely on photographs created by women, was designed to challenge our notion of the female perspective. This intimate installation featured a dozen photographic works from the museum's collection by Angela Grauerholz, Sharon Lockhart, Shirin Neshat, Laurie SimmonsGillian Wearing, and Carrie Mae Weems. As the title suggests, Photography by Women Artists celebrated a wide range of female talent in a mostly male-dominated contemporary medium.

This exhibition was organized by Curatorial Assistant Ilana Chlebowski and Curatorial Intern Sadie McManus.
