WOPHA Congress has been rescheduled, and will now take place from November 18-19, 2021
WOPHA / 11.12.2020
Following the lead of similar local, national, and international organizations, and CDC recommendations, we have made the decision to postpone the WOPHA Congress for one year. In collaboration with our lead supporter the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and partner Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), we are pleased to announce that the WOPHA Congress has been rescheduled, and will now take place from November 18-19, 2021.
The two-day symposium will create a place for photography in Miami and advance the mission of WOPHA to research, promote, support, and educate about the role of women, and those who identify as women, in photography. The activities presented during the event will aid the professional development of women photographers, thus further establishing Miami as an international center for modern and contemporary photography and scholastic conversations around the role of women in the discipline.
The Congress will consist of daily panels featuring photo-focused art historians, theorists, curators, and preeminent women artists that share seminal research in the field. It will grant both locally-based and international practitioners an unparalleled opportunity to learn and form meaningful, career-building connections. More than 15 esteemed speakers from around the globe have confirmed their engagement, including Deborah Willis (Professor of Photography and Imaging at New York University), Abigail Solomon-Godeau (Professor Emerita, Department of Art History, University of California), Roxana Marcoci (Senior Curator of Photography at The Museum of Modern Art), among others.
