100 Portraits: Women Artists, Photographs by Barbara Yoshida
In her exhibition, “One Hundred Portraits: Women Artists,” American fine art photographer Barbara Yoshida presents a fascinating photographic survey of women artists through portraits that reveal a key aspect of each artist’s identity. Since 1990, Yoshida has travelled the world to document more than one hundred women in their studios and homes. Her diverse subjects, who range from art world luminaries to artists starting their careers, work in a variety of styles with no distinction between fine art and craft. Collectively, they can be seen as a community of artists that fearlessly pushes forward the boundaries of art making.
Yoshida’s historic and unprecedented series celebrating women artists will be on view during Women’s History Month in the Salena Gallery at LIU Brooklyn (Library Learning Center, Ground Floor, 1 University Plaza, Brooklyn, NY 11201.) This marks the U.S. premiere of the exhibition that debuted at the National Museum in Poland in 2010.
Work by some of the artists portrayed by Yoshida will be contributed to the exhibition. The list of participating women, still in formation, includes artists from the United States and around the world: Candida Alvarez (U.S.), Sara Berti (Italy), Peggy Cyphers (U.S.), Marta Deskur (Poland), Julie Heffernan (U.S.), Zsuzsanna Kemenesi (Hungary), Li-lan (U.S.), Luce (France), Susan Silas (U.S.), Chrysanne Stathacos (Canadian; living in NY), Rella Stuart-Hunt (U.S.), May Sun (U.S.), Marcela Taboada (Mexico) and Hannah Wilke (U.S.)
