As part of Les Rencontres de la Photographie de Arles, I am taking part in the project The Family of No Man, curated by Natasha Christia and Brad Feuerhelm, which will be on show at Cosmos Arles Book from 2 to 7 July 2018.
We are 494 women and transgender photographers from all over the world.
The words of the Commissioners on the project.
“The Family of No Man is the culmination of an open call that has brought together 4964 female and inter-gender artists from all around the world working in the medium of photography. The aim of this radical curatorial proposition is to revisit Edward Steichen’s original The Family of Man, a seminal photographic exhibition and publication from 1955, which in its time was described “as one of the most ambitious undertakings in an art museum”. Performing the patterns and production modes of the original project, which garnered both appraisal and controversy, The Family of No Man is conceived of as an open-ended physical and virtual platform of how the world today is seen through non-male eyes. The participants’ works are displayed in a series of interactive outdoor and indoor installations.
Through its visual discourse, program of talks and parallel actions, The Family of No Man aspires to open up a critical space for an inclusive debate, open to all, on gender equality, photography and its historiography.”
From 2th to 7th july 2, rue Condoncert. Ancienne collège Frédéric Mistral. 13200. Arles
