Rania Matar
Girls in Between: Portraits of Identity
September 6 - November 3, 2012
PRC Gallery, 832 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston

matarWith her camera Rania Matar poignantly captures the elusive and mysterious moment in a female's life when she is both a child and an emerging woman. The girls in Matar's photographs, from both the United States and Lebanon, simultaneously hide and expose themselves, exhibiting a dual vulnerability and ferocity completely unique to the female transition from girl to woman. This show features work from Matar's highly acclaimed project A Girl and Her Room as well as never-before-seen work from Matar's new project L'Enfant-Femme.

Nancy Grace Horton: Being 13
September 6 - November 3, 2012
PRC Members' Gallery, 832 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston

In this exhibition, Nancy Grace Horton explores her stepdaughter's navigation through the often monumental year of being 13. With Zoe as her muse, Horton captures priceless moments in the world of a girl who is leaving a part of herself behind while learning to embrace who she is becoming--Zoe expresses a variety of states peculiar to girls in their early teens: defiance, playfulness, embarrassment, youthfulness, boredom, and independence. Horton's enchanting photographs clearly depict her subject's blossoming sense of selfhood while also revealing the artist's deep affection for and fascination with her subject.
