Join us for a moderated discussion with artists Vincent Cianni and Debbie Grossman about the role of gender in their work that is included in The Gender Show

In 1993, Vincent Cianni moved to a neighborhood in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, known as the Southside. He was quickly enthralled by the vivid character of the neighborhood—enjoying the sounds, smells, and sights of this predominantly Latino area. In particular, Cianni was drawn to a group of Latino boys who practiced inline skating near his home. Over nine years, Cianni photographed the group as they grew into young men.

Debbie Grossman’s series My Pie Town modifies photographs originally taken in 1940 by Russell Lee for the United States Farm Security Administration to create an imaginary, parallel world populated exclusively by women and girls.
