The New Woman of the 1920s was a powerful expression of modernity, a global phenomenon that embodied an ideal of female empowerment based on real women making revolutionary changes in life and art. Featuring more than 120 photographers from over 20 countries, this groundbreaking exhibition at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art explores the work of the diverse “new” women who embraced photography as a mode of professional and artistic expression from the 1920s through the 1950s. Don’t miss this tour with exhibit curator Mia Fineman for a special tour of this exhibit, at the Met through October 3.
