Humble Arts Foundation, in collaboration with Ladies Lotto, presents “31 Under 31: Young Women in Art Photography”
Curated by Lumi Tan and Jon Feinstein Opening reception: Saturday, March 1, 2008 Public reception: 7 – 9 pm | After party: 9 – 12 am
Humble Arts Foundation is proud to partner with Ladies Lotto to present “31 Under 31: Young Women in Art Photography.” The exhibition, which opens in honor of Women’s History month on March 1, 2008 at 3rd Ward in Brooklyn, celebrates 31 innovative young women in emerging art photography under the age of 31. The exhibition presents an eclectic mix of emerging talent, culled from open submissions.
“31 Under 31,” states Natalie Blacker, founder of Ladies Lotto, “was curated to showcase a new generation of women art photographers, which epitomizes the basic premise of Ladies Lotto, supporting women’s individual efforts in collaborative form.”
Lumi Tan, Director of Zach Feuer Gallery in NYC, and Jon Feinstein, Curatorial Director of Humble Arts Foundation co-curated the exhibition. “While it is impossible to capture the full breadth of international talent by female photographers in one exhibition,” say Tan and Feinstein, “we feel that the diversity of subjects and intent are a clear representation of the wide range of skill and creativity that is flourishing today. By allowing the works to be culled from an open call, we hope to give exposure to unknown photographers while simultaneously showcasing more familiar names in contemporary photography.”
The exhibition includes photographs by Amy Elkins, Ashley Lefrak, Dru Donovan, Elaine Stocki, Helen Maurene Cooper, Ka-Man Tse, Mary Mattingly, Ahndraya Parlato, Alejandra Laviada, Alana Celli, Alex Van Clief, Allison Grant, Catherine Maloney, Dina Kantor, Hannah Whittaker, Jessica Bruah, Jessica Roberts, Jaimie Warren, Kate and Camilla, Kelly Kleinschrodt, Marta Labad, Manya Fox, Molly Landreth, Nadine Rovner, Rachael Dunville, Reka Reisinger, Sara Padgett, Sarah Small, Sarah Sudhoff, Talia Chetrit and Tealia Ellis Ritter
