All Women are Dangerous at Building Bridges Art Exchange
In a more enlightened time, this exhibit would be a great showcase of contemporary photography, in all of the many technical and artistic approaches and digital and manual processes. However, in light of the age we live in, the works exhibited at Building Bridges Art Exchange must be considered for all the pertinent bite and visual fire they scream to the viewer. Hence the title: All Women Are Dangerous.Photography has a complicated legacy, starting as an inexpensive means of portraiture to the masses, then documenting the horrors and wonders of humanity, and then evolving into a way to capture reality for the purpose of abstracting it. The artists attached to this legacy are mostly men, but contemporarily the best-known photographers are women: Cindy Sherman, Cathie Opie, Annie Leibowitz.
