Essere Umane. Le grandi fotografe raccontano il mondo
18 September 2021 - 30 January 2022
Forlì, at the Musei di San Domenico, hosts until January 30 a comprehensive review of the work of the most influential authors in the history of photography.
There are more than 30 artists involved, and more than 300 images on display; the exhibition is proposed as a chronological path that covers the entire history of the twentieth century and that looks up to the present day, all declined and read under the lens of female figures who have contributed to modernize and emancipate the role of women in the photographic industry.
From Berenice Abbott to Letizia Battaglia, from Silvia Camporesi to Cao Fei, from Annie Leibovitz to Zanele Muholi… The origin (historical, geographical and cultural) of the authors is as diversified as their production. The developments of the twentieth century and the beginning of the twenty-first make themselves strong in this stylistic polyformity, and thus become witnesses to the change, evolution and emancipation of the female gaze within a world dominated by the lens of patriarchy.
