MTSU’s Baldwin Photographic Gallery is featuring an exhibit of more than 25 of Chicago-based photographic artist Patty Carroll‘s large-scale works from her ongoing “Anonymous Women: Camouflage and Calamity” project, open now through April 17 in the Bragg Media and Entertainment Building.
The artist spoke about her work at a public lecture March 12.
The Baldwin Photographic Gallery is located in Room 269 on the second floor of the Bragg Building. A campus map is available at http://tinyurl.com/MTParkingMap.
Gallery hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays when university classes are in session.
Off-campus guests visiting the gallery during regular business hours should obtain a special one-day permit from MTSU’s Office of Parking and Transportation at 1403 E. Main St. or online at www.mtsu.edu/parking/visit.php.
In this series, Carroll has said, she creates luxe studio installations for the camera to “confront the complicated and changing relationship between women and domesticity.” By camouflaging female mannequins with drapery and domestic objects, she creates a game of hide-and-seek between her viewers and the “Anonymous Women.”
The “Anonymous Women” series has been exhibited internationally and has won multiple awards, including a Top 50 recognition by the arts nonprofit Photolucida in 2014.
Carroll’s work has been featured in media that includes the Huffington Post and The Cut, and her photographs have been shown internationally in one-person exhibits in China’s White Box Museum of Art in Beijing and the U.K.’s Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain in Bath, as well as in the United States, including the Art Institute of Chicago.
