Playing With Perception: Photographs by Florence Henri

June 13, 2015 - November 29, 2015

Drawn from the Everson’s collection, this exhibition presents a selection of photographs by Florence Henri, an accomplished artist of the early twentieth century who remains relatively unknown today.  Henri studied painting with some of the major avant-garde artists of the twentieth century, including Fernand Leger and Lazlo Moholy-Nagy, before turning to photography. Intrigued by notions of playing with perception in life as well as art, the androgynous Henri frequently utilized mirrors in her works to create reflections, distort images, and challenge reality. Her abstract compositions, portraits, and advertising images exploited the possibilities of photography and share affinities with the works of contemporaries like Herbert Bayer, Adolph Baron de Meyer, and Man Ray.
