in association with Hasted Kraeutler, is pleased to announce its third, biennial edition of 31 Women in Art Photography opening at Hasted Kraeutler, located at 537 West 24th Street, on Thursday, July 26, 2012 from 6PM - 8PM. 31, curated by Natalia Sacasa and Jon Feinstein, celebrates thirty-one of the most innovative women in new art photography. The exhibition continues through August 17, 2012.
The exhibition presents an eclectic mix of new talent culled from open submissions, and similar to Humble Art Foundation's past projects, the work included defies fixed genres in contemporary art photography and features an international pool of images that range from documentary to still life, and in some cases incorporates multiple approaches.
"Reviewing the submissions for the 31 Women in Art Photography exhibition was an enlightening experience," says curator Natalia Sacasa. "I have come away with a deeper understanding of the influences and motivations that drive the current generation of practicing female art photographers. This group of women that we have selected are truly furthering the limits of the medium and are simultaneously involved in the discourse of conceptual art."
Curator Jon Feinstein adds, "I am thrilled to have the opportunity to exhibit this innovative new work. The artists in this exhibition are taking a refreshing approach to photography and continue to push it forward in new and exciting ways."
