    CSWS: “Women’s Stories, Women’s Lives” JSMA Photo Exhibit & Gallery Talk, September 9, 2013 to December 29, 2013
    Gallery Talk: October 18 Noon to 1:00 p.m., Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, 1430 Johnson Lane, UO campus

    This special selection of photographs from the permanent collection are on view in conjunction with the 40th anniversary of the Center for the Study of Women in Society, a campus organization that creates, funds, and shares research that addresses the complicated nature of gender identities and inequalities. Curated by graduate students Sarah Turner and with assistance from Regan Watjus, “Women’s Stories, Women’s Lives” presents images representing the diversity of the female experience. The JSMA’s collection of photography originally focused on [primarily male] artists working on the West Coast, but it has expanded to include over 1,000 images by both men and women from the Americas, Asia, Australia, and Europe. In making selections for this display, the student curators chose artists of both genders, whose social documentary photographs reflected women from different walks of life. Their subjects’ personal stories, captured in moments in time, are empowering, realistic, and relatable. On that same token, the lives of the female photographers are equally interesting and inspiring. “Women’s Stories, Women’s Lives” celebrates both the women in front of and behind the cameras.
