TAMPA, FLA.- The Tampa Museum of Art is presenting Modern Women: Modern Vision | Works from the Bank of America Collection on view through May 24, 2020.

Since photography’s inception in the mid-nineteenth century, women have stood among its artistic and technological pioneers. Modern Women: Modern Vision presents more than one hundred photographic images from the Bank of America Collection by leading artists of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries.

Joanna Robotham, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, remarked, “This exhibition is important because it highlights the achievements of women photographers and how they have contributed to our understanding of photography as an art form. Moreover, many of the photographers pioneered new directions and new narratives in photography. I am excited for the Tampa Museum of Art to host this exhibition as photography is a cornerstone of our collection and the show emphasizes ideas that I have explored in past exhibitions, as well concepts I hope to develop in future projects. We are pleased to work with Bank of America and share with our visitors their significant collection of 20th- and 21st-century photography.”

“We were excited at the opportunity to partner with the Tampa Museum of Art to bring this incredible exhibition as part of our Arts in our Communities program that loans exhibitions at no cost to nonprofit community museums” said Bill Goede, Bank of America President in Tampa Bay. “We recognize that the arts matter as both a cultural and economic driver to our local community. Tampa Bay has a tremendous arts and culture landscape and we encourage everyone to visit and experience it.”

The exhibition is organized in six thematic sections: “Modernist Innovators,” “Documentary Photography and the New Deal,” “Photo League,” “Modern Masters,” “Exploring the Environment,” and “The Global Contemporary Lens.” Each section examines the photographers’ role in forging new directions and methods in photography, as well as how the medium has evolved with the advent of new digital and studio practices. Artists featured in this exhibition include Berenice Abbott, Diane Arbus, Tina Barney, Bernd Becher and Hilla Becher, Margaret Bourke-White, Esther Bubley, Imogen Cunningham, Rineke Dijkstra, Candida Höfer, Barbara Kruger, Dorothea Lange, Nikki S. Lee, Helen Levitt, Sonia Handelman Meyer, DoDo Jin Ming, Ruth Orkin, Cindy Sherman, Carrie Mae Weems, and others.
