|Title||“Thin” and “Girl Culture”|
“Thin” is a documentary project by noted contemporary photographer Lauren Greenfield on the subject of eating disorders. Greenfield followed and photographed a group of women in treatment at the Renfrew Center in Florida, producing color photographs and a documentary film about the women and their experiences. “Thin” grew out of an earlier body of work, “Girl Culture,” which focused on the image-obsession of women of all ages in the United States. Selections from “Girl Culture” will be displayed in an adjacent gallery to provide a context for “Thin” and expand the themes of the show. “Thin” was curated by the artist Trudy Wilner Stack and was organized by the Women’s Museum: An Institute for the Future, Dallas, Texas, and Greenfield/Evers, LLC. Ends April 26.
