“The museum is delighted to present this outstanding collection of some of the 20th century’s foremost photographers, including works by Berenice Abbott, Diane Arbus, Eva Besnyö, Imogen Cunningham and Barbara Morgan,” said Christoph Heinrich, the Frederick and Jan Mayer Director of the Denver Art Museum. “Women embraced the medium early on, in part because photography had fewer barriers for female participation, compared with more traditional art forms such as painting and sculpture. We’re delighted to share these images which, through their creative processes, reflect Modernist principles and tell stories of social, political and economic change.”

“We believe that the arts matter as both a cultural and economic driver to our local community, with institutions like the Denver Art Museum performing a critical role in enriching and educating our society,” said Raju Patel, President, Bank of America Denver. “We are proud to bring to Colorado an exceptional exhibition that celebrates women artists whose photography reflects on and documents America’s history and evolution. We hope everyone viewing the show will come away inspired, educated and moved by their work.” Modern Women/Modern Vision presents the work of celebrated women artists in six thematic sections, including Modernist Innovators, Documentary Photography and the New Deal, the Photo League, Modern Masters, Exploring the Environment and The Global Contemporary Lens to reflect the impact of female artists in the medium of photography.
