Nora Benjamin and Arrietta van der Voort: I Am, I Am, I Am

March 7–April 3, 2024
Opening Reception: March 7, 5-7 p.m.

I Am, I Am, I Am brings together the work of Nora Benjamin and Arrietta van der Voort, two photographers interested in the trappings and pitfalls of traditional femininity and gender roles, and explores the internal experience of being a girl and young woman in relationship to these stereotypes. This exhibition contextualizes the work of Benjamin and van der Voort in relation to themes of womanhood and girlhood, fragmentation, and the struggle of forming self-identity in the context of strong cultural influences. I Am, I Am, I Am investigates the mania and exhaustion of self-discovery and “keeping up” as a girl and woman in a world full of high expectations and standards.


Artist Talk: Thursday, March 14, 6-7 p.m.
