Upcoming Exhibition

  • 2 September-23 December 2024

    Why did women travel? How did they engage with the world during their journey? What did they choose to share when they returned? Women’s travel stories tell us about much more than the places they visit. Their carefully crafted narratives and keepsakes suggest intrepid adventurers, privileged tourists, devoted companions, tireless proselytizers, perceptive scientists, or pioneers and colonizers. Through their shared experiences, made possible by a burgeoning travel book industry, they communicate their relationship to empire, participation in historical events, and inclusion and exclusion from many parts of culture at home and abroad.

    This exhibition is curated by David Fernández, Ksenya Kiebuzinski, and Elizabeth Ridolfo.
