“Trouble in View” was presented as an official selection of the Mois de la Photo in Paris (in the “Women of images” category). Organized in collaboration with guest curator Martha Langford, this project intersects the views of two artists showing together for the first time in a conversation meant to address the following question: Is there a woman’s view of photography, and what in this context might “woman’s” mean? And, if such a thing exists, what can a woman’s view contribute to the way we think about photographic media? For the past twenty years, both Marian Penner Bancroft (Vancouver) and Sylvie Readman (Montreal) have conducted influential investigations into gender/genre (a gendered view of aesthetic genres) as well as a thoroughly related questioning of identity.
