Join Hasselblad and Musée Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, Andrea Blanch, as she hosts an Artist Talk, featuring Mona Kuhn, Rachel Perry and Molly Soda.
Sponsored by Hasselblad in partnership with Musée Magazine, the panel will be moderated by writer Carol Kino. The three artists all explore, in their unique contrasting styles, the visual representations of the female body in art and the manipulation of perspectives to create psychological intrigue. These artists will show their work and come to talk about their creative processes, related to representations of women now.
