In the Eye of the Beholder: Gender through the Camera Lens
September 10 @ 12:00 am
Lens at the Fitchburg Art Museum, 185 Elm St., Fitchburg. In the Eye of the Beholder delves into the Fitchburg Art Museum’s permanent collection to explore how photographers have used the “gendered gaze” across the 20th and early 21st centuries. This exhibition highlights some of the museum’s iconic favorites and recent acquisitions—including work from Sir Zanele Muholi, Cindy Sherman, and Yasumasa Morimura—to examine how power is embedded in the male and female gazes. In the Eye of the Beholder further explores artists who experiment with or outright reject the gender binary, questioning and complicating methods of perceiving gender and its performance.
