Visual Diaries/Girls is a group exhibition that opens tonight at Stephanie Bender Gallery in Munich. Curated by Florencia Serrot, it features the work of eleven women photographers, each from a different country (myself included). The show looks to document and investigate a new breed of female photographers whose work is autobiographical in nature and serves as a kind of public diary. All of those exhibiting have followed what can be thought of as non-traditional paths – either showing their work primarily online, curating shows, self-publishing and founding publications of their own.
Visual Diaries/Girls will be shown at Stephanie Bender Gallery, Schleissheimerstr. 9, Munich, May 6 – June 4. It will then travel to Temporary Storage Projects in New York, and others galleries (dates TBC). Exhibiting artists are Sara Gomes (Portugal), Madi Ju (China), Helen Korpak (Finland), Manuela de Laborde (Mexico), Skye Parrott (USA), Olga Perevalova (Russia), Nuria Rius (Spain), Florencia Serrot (Argentina), Agnes Thor (Sweden), Sophie Van der Perre (Holland), and Harley Weir (United Kindgom). An exhibition a cataloge will be published by Moser Verlag.
