Over the course of one year Christy Lange will create between fifteen and twenty short critical texts focusing on contemporary women artists working with photography and exhibitions that address the photographic medium. Short features will discuss single artists and will introduce their work to audiences outside their geographic contexts. She will extend the scope of her research to cities—including Belgrade, Bratislava, Bucharest, Krakow, and Moscow—that are under-represented in the Western art press. The articles will explore in depth the work of emerging female artists working with photography, including Margarete Jakschik, Rinko Kawauchi, and O Zheng.
