Joan Lyons (b. 1937) has been extending the limits of photography, printmaking, and artists’ books for over six decades. In the 1960s–1980s, she focused on a feminist inquiry into the deeply personal and particular as subjects for her art. To this day she continues to investigate the power and conventions of photography, image-making, and representation within Western culture. The Memorial Art Gallery has organized the first museum exhibition to survey the artist’s significant career in her home town of Rochester, NY.
