flyer for the exhibition opening. herself in time is an exhibition of women self-portrait photography with artists from the 1920’s to today. the exhibit is site-specific to the rea coffeehouse which is has been abandoned for the last decade. viewing rea as a self-portrait of chatham, with its rich history and graffitied walls, i hope to raise awareness about the space in order to get it running as an unconventional art gallery on chatham’s campus for future exhibitions.
the photography installation is a celebration of women, self-exploration, the history of self-portraits in photography, and the uniqueness of rea coffeehouse.
