“Women in Colour” at RUBBER FACTORY

This weekend at RUBBER FACTOR, the group show “Women in Colour” opens with an impressive—as the name suggests—all-women lineup. Curated by Ellen Carey (who is presenting work, as well, showing Dings & Shadows), the exhibition examines the origins and history of color photography. The British spelling of “color” in its title also references color photography’s origins in England.

To celebrate the pioneering role of legendary artists, such as Anna Atkins, the first camera-less woman photographer to use cyanotype-as-photogram to create “word art,” the show highlights well-known artists like Cindy Sherman, Laurie Simmons, and Carrie Mae Weems, while also including younger artists, such as Meghann Riepenhoff, Whitney Hubbs, and Liz Nielsen. To add, we see special works like Eye by Elinor Carucci, Planty by Patty Carroll, Star Field Bracken by Susan Derges, and 108 by Mariah Robertson.

 

“Women in Colour” is on view until September 27.
