Patty Carroll Brings Her Captivating Photographs — and Limited-Edition Prints — to Dallas

Catch the Lauded Chicago Photographer and Educator's Work in the Design District

BY // 11.24.21

We’ve been obsessed with Patty Carroll’s constructed feminist photographs since acquiring a copy of the artist’s monograph, Anonymous Women, in 2017. Now, Photographs Do Not Bend Gallery brings the Chicago-based talent to Dallas. MoMA-collected Carroll is approaching a half-century career in the photo medium, where she’s taught at universities worldwide, including the Art Institute of Chicago and the Royal College of Art in London.

In 2014 and 2017, she was one of Photolucida’s picks for Top 50 photographers for her ongoing series “Anonymous Women,” which debuts now in Dallas. Laced with dark humor and captivating imagery, the female protagonist is obscured in each work by a series of props that portend perilous disaster; marauding porcelain panthers in a tropical-themed living room, tumbling platters of crimson Jello around a dining table.
