About Women Photographers International Archive (WOPHA)
Women Photographers International Archive (WOPHA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded by 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. Having begun as a dynamic database showcasing the unique stories of women-identified Cuban photographers, WOPHA has expanded its geographic scope to include photographers from around the globe. The organization is currently documenting the diverse artistic production of Latin American and Latinx communities, including photographers from Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and artists of Latin American descent living and working in the United States.
About AWARE: Archives of Women Artists, Research and Exhibitions
AWARE: Archives of Women Artists, Research & Exhibitions is a non-profit organization co-founded by art historian Camille Morineau in 2014 that works towards making women artists of the 19th and 20th century visible by producing and sharing free bilingual (French/English) content about their work on its website. This online resource presently contains more than 1,000 biographical texts and draws up to 75,000 visits per month. AWARE represents a diversity of voices with texts written by around 450 researchers, curators, feminist art historians, art critics, and activists from all over the world. To widely disseminate research on women artists, AWARE also organizes symposia, round tables, and seminars in collaboration with institutions, universities, museums, and other independent structures internationally, and edits its own publications. AWARE is located at the Villa Vassilieff (in Paris’ 15th district), where artist Marie Vassilieff set up her studio in the 1910s. Within this strongly symbolic space, AWARE has created a research centre entirely devoted to women artists and feminist art, and hosts events, talks and school workshops.
