CINCINNATI, OHIO.- The Taft Museum of Art welcomes a bold exhibition that explores the diverse perspectives of women since photography’s inception, from early pioneers to photographers still working today. On view June 3 to September 10, 2023, Modern Women/Modern Vision: Photography from the Bank of America Collection features approximately one hundred radically inventive photographic images at each phase of modern history, on loan through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program.

Though not always credited, women have played a vital role in framing the modern experience through the camera lens. Histories of photography have long ignored or underrepresented women’s contributions to the medium’s development as both fine and applied art. Photography has been one way women have negotiated waves of social, political, and economic change.

Challenging longstanding constraints placed on social behavior and gender roles, women helped establish photography as a vital form of creative expression, serving as role models for subsequent generations of artists. Modern Women/Modern Vision traces the pioneering paths and accomplishments of influential women photographers over the past century through the work of artists such as pictorialist Gertrude Käsebier; modernists Margaret Bourke-White and Imogen Cunningham; Depression-era documentary photographers Dorothea Lange and Esther Bubley; post–World War II innovators Diane Arbus, Cindy Sherman, and Barbara Kruger; and contemporary photographers Carrie Mae Weems and Rineke Dijkstra.

Drawn from Bank of America’s extensive photography collection, Modern Women/Modern Vision presents a breadth of styles, perspectives, and subjects. The works in the exhibition range from spontaneous to composed, detached to empathetic, and monumental to intimate, revealing the dynamic ways women have contributed to the evolution of photography.

“We believe in the power of the arts to help economies thrive, to educate and enrich societies, and to create greater cultural understanding," says Mark Ryan, President, Bank of America Cincinnati. "Through our Art in our Communities® program, we’ve converted our corporate art collection into a unique community resource from which museums and nonprofit galleries may borrow complete or customized exhibitions at no cost. We’re pleased to partner with the Taft Museum of Art in displaying the Modern Women/Modern Vision exhibit which is carefully curated to evoke strong emotions and highlight the incredible trailblazing technical and artistic contributions of women in photography."

Modern Women/Modern Vision opens to the public June 3, 2023.
