MODfest 2022: Women R Beautiful

Jan. 10 – Feb. 6, 2022

Palmer Gallery, College Center

This Palmer Gallery Exhibition by Ruben Natal-San Miguel is part of MODfest, Vassar’s annual arts festival, which runs from January 27 to February 5, 2022.

Ruben Natal-San Miguel says this exhibit of photographs is “a way to have people understand otherness and other beauty…” The photographs may call to mind the work of 20th century photographer Garry Winogrand’s “Women Are Beautiful,” but Natal-San Miguel’s photographs embody a different gaze, a different perspective of different women, allowing the viewer to see and be affected by his subjects in a new way.

Opening reception, Thursday January 27, 5:00pm – 7:00pm
