Woman With A Camera at the Museum of Contemporary Art

Looks like this event has already taken place.


220 E. Chicago Ave., Chicago, IL 60611

July 8, 2017 - January 14, 2018Woman with a Camera showcases a major gift of 50 photographs from Jack and Sandra Guthman’s collection donated to the MCA for the museum’s 50th anniversary. Sharing the museum’s dedication to collecting the work of contemporary female artists, the Guthman exhibition is comprised of photographs by 16 women from different backgrounds, generations, and practices, including established masters Catherine Opie, Laurie Simmons, and Carrie Mae Weems, as well as ascendant artists Anne Collier, Xaviera Simmons, and Mickalene Thomas. Together, the women use photography to address facets of politics, history, and identity, and explore central themes in contemporary photography: rendering the human figure, capturing public or private spaces, and commenting on our media-saturated culture. On view as part of the museum’s 50th anniversary, Woman with a Camera demonstrates the remarkable breadth of the Guthman collection and honors this landmark addition to the MCA collection.
