The Whitechapel Gallery in London presents photography and video works from the collection of the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C., the only international museum dedicated to women artists. Works by seventeen contemporary artists from around the world capture women on camera in domestic spaces and expansive landscapes. These artists embrace the female body as a vital medium for expressing identity including themselves and for communicating individual and collective experiences. On display from 18 January to 16 April 2017. Here for more information.
