About The Event

We are delighted to announce our support for the inclusion of Romanian photographer Alexandra Croitoru in a new exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum entitled "In the Now: Gender and Nation in Europe, Selections from the Sir Mark Fehrs Haukohl Photography Collection". This exhibition brings together nearly 50 women artists from Europe, exploring themes of power, identity, and history through the lens of photography. Running from March 8 to July 7, 2024, the exhibition delves into issues such as migration, the enduring impact of nationalism in Europe, and the pervasive influence of patriarchal power structures.

Through the photographic techniques she uses, the artist challenges the historically male-centric narrative of photography, offering fresh perspectives on societal norms and expectations. Alexandra Croitoru's work specifically sheds light on the societal and patriarchal pressures faced by women.

Furthermore, Alexandra Croitoru will present her series of photographs featured in the collection during a public event on May 30, 2024, as part of the Art History Happy Hour. This presentation aims to foster an open dialogue between the artist, organizers, and attendees, inviting the New York City art community to engage with contemporary perspectives on gender and nationhood in Europe.

Access to the event is by ticket only. More details on the organizers' website: TICKETS.
