Session 3 focusses on photography, creating a conversation between two black and white, silver gelatin prints, representing the portraits of women.

One by American, Dada/Surrealist artist, Man Ray, from a series, Veiled Erotic, taken in 1933, representing his lover, the artist, Meret Oppenheim. The other, a self-portrait by contemporary South African artist, Zanele Muholi, part of an extensive, ongoing series of self-portraits, titled, Somnyama Ngonyama’(Hail the Dark Lioness). Both artists challenge the idea of photography as a mechanical process which simply translates or documents reality. Both create highly performative images, staging their subjects and using objects as ‘uncanny’ props to defamiliarize their identities.

In the series:

Thurs. Dec. 15 – Painting
Thurs. Dec. 29 – Sculpture
WED. Jan. 4, 2023 – Photography*
