JANE EVELYN ATWOOD – Paris Red Light: 1976-1979
September 13 – November 22, 2019

Opening Reception on Thursday, September 12th, 6-8pm

“Atwood’s two long-term immersive projects explore cis- and trans- gendered communities among prostitutes in Paris. The legal precariousness and social intimacy of these groups’ activities lie in contrast with their public presence and display. For Atwood, the camera became a tool to articulate her fascination with this duality and to engage with it as a witness: “I wanted to look but I didn’t want to stare”. The exhibition’s intimately scaled vintage prints offer a peek into a world rarely visible to outsiders.”
