In religious mythology, Lilith is the first wife of Adam. Made of the same dust, she considered herself his equal. Confident and aware of her power, she chose to leave Adam instead of to subjugate herself to his will.
Regarded by some academics as the first feminist, the story of Lilith presents a new narrative to the better-known story of Adam and Eve. Like her story, this exhibition presents the works of women photographers Jodi Bieber, Guia Besana, Maxine Helfman, Allison Janae Hamilton, and Donna Cooper Hurt who use the camera to create new or alternative narratives regarding femininity, history, identity and power.
