Amy Jorgensen: Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue
February 8 — March 12, 2017
“Amy Jorgensen’s series Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue addresses the continuing relevance of the women’s rights movement since its inception in 19th century England to its robust manifestations today. 18 images of English suffragettes rendered in cyanotype prints, an early 19th century photographic process instantly recognizable for its brilliant cobalt blue color, are transferred onto vintage handkerchiefs, exploring themes of femininity, oppression, and the construction of female identity.”
