Spanning the mid-nineties to the present, 8 Women includes Schorr’s highly personal early works alongside her own shoots from fashion magazines which she has appropriated, folding them into a dialogue with other works. Appropria- tion was Schorr’s first medium and in returning to it, she addresses issues of authorship and desire and introduces a female gaze into the debate about female representation. The works in 8 Women propose a variety of subjects, all of whom are involved in performance, be it as artists, models or musicians.
