Join The Library Company Spetember 8th for a lecture by Helen Cooper to learn more about the art exhibit, The Caregivers. 

This exhibit is Helen Maurene Cooper’s current portrait project rooted in 19th-centry wet-plate collodion photographic techniques and a sidewalk studio. Cooper’s ambrotype portraits explore caregiving not as a given role for women but within the context of queer and feminist ideologies and the notion of this labor as a radical act. Spend the evening with Ms. Cooper as she shares portraits from The Caregivers  and discusses the artistic process for her newest body of work that addresses public space and the politics of family and intimacy during a period of self-isolation.

The project is sponsored by the Visual Culture Program
