Through April 14 

Lens Without Limits: The Photography of Lida Moser

The Trout Gallery, Weiss Center for the Arts
Gallery hours: Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

This exhibition considers the work of New York City commercial photographer and photojournalist Lida Moser (1920-2014). She is best known for her pioneering work documenting the city from its postwar era up through the gritty 1970s. Moser first worked as an assistant in Berenice Abbott's studio and later moved on to a solo career, gaining assignments from a number of leading publications, including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Esquire. She was a member of the Photo League and the New York school of photography and produced portraits of many of the leading cultural figures of the second half of the century. This exhibition is curated by senior art-history majors Jacqueline Hochheiser, Kate Marra and Monica Skelly, under the direction of Elizabeth Lee.

Through May 12

Lalla Essaydi: Photographs

The Trout Gallery, Weiss Center for the Arts
Gallery hours: Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Lalla Essaydi’s career as an artist encompasses painting, mixed media, video and photography to explore the image of woman in Islamic society. Raised in Morocco, Essaydi spent many years in Saudi Arabia and was educated in Europe and the United States. Her photography provides a contemporary reflection on an iconography rooted in Orientalist imagery of 19th-century artists such as Ingres, Delacroix and Gérôme. This exhibition features a recent series of pictures Essaydi made in a former harem in Morocco, often swathing her subjects in robes and covering their skin in henna calligraphy that echoes the decorative surfaces that wall the complex. “In my art,” Essaydi says, “I wish to present myself through multiple lenses—as artist, as Moroccan, as Saudi, as traditionalist, as liberal, as Muslim. In short, I invite the viewer to resist stereotypes.”
