  • Description

    Midway Contemporary Art is pleased to announce a public conversation between Jenni Crain, curator of Tee A. Corinne: Selections from the Lesbian Herstory Archives (on view at Midway through March 28th); Drew Sawyer, Phillip Leonian and Edith Rosenblaum Leonian Curator of Photography at the Brooklyn Museum; and artist Carmen Winant. Together, they will discuss the practice of the late artist, activist, and educator Tee A. Corinne, considering the position of her photographic work within the discourse of feminist photography, as well as the formal strategies that she implemented as interventional methods, disrupting the patriarchal perspectives through which women have predominantly been depicted in the fine arts and beyond. The conversation will address the potential of collectivity and the camera in re-imagining/imaging spaces of empowerment.
