As associate curator at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., Andrea Nelson — who started at the museum as a curatorial intern and also serves as co-chair of the museum’s Time-based Media Art Working Group — focuses her curatorial and scholarly gaze on 20th-century art and the history of photography.

Hear about her forthcoming exhibition The New Woman Behind the Camera, which features work by more than 120 international photographers from the 1920s to the 1950s at the forefront of artistic experimentation. The exhibition explores how these women artists changed the history of modern photography through their invaluable visual testimony that reflects both their personal experiences and the extraordinary social and political transformations of the early 20th century.
