The world’s first-ever WOPHA Congress is a two-day convening presented at the Pérez Art Museum Miami and virtually, with parallel activations occurring across the city. It seeks to create a critical space for photography by bringing together worldwide organizations of women photographers, art historians, theorists, and curators who aim to build upon and better represent the dynamic history of women photographers from the nineteenth century through today. This event presents seminal and emerging research and discourse in the field, considering both national and international discussions about women and feminisms in the history of photography. At the same time, it constitutes a platform to celebrate women and provides an unparalleled network for the international community of women in the photographic arts.
Women Photographers International Archive (WOPHA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded by Latinx art historian and curator Aldeide Delgado to research, promote, support, and educate on the role of those who identify as women and non-binary in photography.
