Dual Gaze: Picturing Female Identity
Artist Lectures: Libby Rowe and O. Rufus Lovett

Libby Rowe’s installation-based work entitled “Pink” incorporates photography, video and sculpture. She addresses female identity in ways that are both informational and confrontational.
O. Rufus Lovett’s documentary work deals with female identity as constructed through drill team participation. His book “Kilgore Rangerettes” has received national acclaim and was included in the American Photo list of the top 10 books of 2008.
