A Brand New End: Survival and Its Pictures is a photography-based exhibition of new work by Carmen Winant as part of a five-component project developed by the artist through intensive research — a hallmark of her category-defying practice. On June 10th, free, in-person guided exhibition tours will be held with the curator.

 A Brand New End explores historical and contemporary representations of oppression, liberation and self-expression through materials drawn from and inspired by the archives of Women In Transition (WIT) and the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV). This multipart project aims to illuminate the often invisible experiences of women, as well as feminist strategies for survival, revolt and self-determination. It highlights the power of print (photography and printmaking) to depict how women view themselves, and how photography can serve as a tool in the struggle for individual autonomy and self-representation. Through its expansive consideration of image making, domestic violence and the larger feminist movement deploying the archives of WIT and NCADV, A Brand New End critically examines the problems and possibilities of visualizing domestic violence and subsequent survival. 

The exhibition has been organized by Ksenia Nouril, PhD, The Print Center’s Jensen Bryan Curator. A Brand New End: Survival and Its Pictures has been supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
