Amon Carter Museum - In Her Image: Photographs by Rania Matar
Exhibition: December 20, 2017–June 17, 2018
This exhibition brings together four bodies of work by the Lebanese-American
photographer Rania Matar that trace the development of female identity through
portraiture. Depicting transitional moments of life, from young girlhood to
middle age, Matar's works address personal and collective identity through
photographs mining female adolescence and womanhood. Photographing girls and
women in both the United States and the Middle East, the artist shows how the
forces that shape female identity transcend cultural and geographic boundaries.
Large print labels are available for use in the exhibition.
