Focused on three women artists whose diverse photographic oeuvres are informed by the traditions of Surrealism and the theater, this catalogue presents androgynous self-portraits produced in the 1920s and 30s by Cahun (Lucy Schwob, 1894-1954), a French writer and photographer associated with Breton's Surrealist circle; stills from a recent film by Dean (b. 1965) inspired by the martyrdom of St. Agatha; and works by Nimarkoh (b. 1967) composed of found images of interracial groups. Includes a critical discussion of the featured photographs, a chronicle of Cahun's unconventional career, and brief texts by British artists Dean and Nimarkoh.
