Virtual Art talk: The Female Gaze: Life Magazine, Gender, and World War II

Thursday May 14, 2020
5:30 PM

Alissa Schapiro, assistant curator of Life Magazine and the Power of Photography, will discuss the work of three female Life photographers—Margaret Bourke-White, Marie Hansen, and Nina Leen. The talk will focus on their photo-essays about American women in the context of World War II. With the status of female labor in the United States in continuous flux during the war and its immediate aftermath, these photographers captured the roles available to women—paying close attention to race and class in addition to gender—while solidifying their own positions within Life's male-dominated staff.

The talk will be followed by a conversation on gender politics at Life.
