Dana Hoey: The Phantom Sex

October 5 through December 8, 2012
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 6, 4 – 6 pm
Artists’ Talk: Tuesday, October 9, 5:30 pm

Dana Hoey has examined what it means to be female through her photography for more than 20 years. In exploring issues of gender and culture, Hoey uses both staged and directed photography. She began her work photographing friends in a narrative manner, often focusing on aspects of female aggression and competitiveness. Since then, Hoey has expanded her vision to include scenarios in which older women play central roles and typical female activities take on an elevated status. In reframing ideas about beauty, aging, and female identity, Hoey’s newest images retain threads of earlier narrative work, while reflecting a distinctly inward focus.
The exhibition is accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue with essay by Johanna Burton.
