Biographical Note

Maria Karras was born in New York City in 1950 and received her BFA in printmaking from the State University of New York at Buffalo in 1973. Inspired by a two-day workshop led by Judy Chicago that she attended before graduating, Karras decided to enroll at the Feminist Studio Workshop (FSW), which opened later that year in the fall of 1973. She arrived in Los Angeles that September, and became part of the inaugural cohort at the FSW, where she attended the first classes held at co-founder Sheila de Bretteville's home and helped to transform what had been the Chouinard Art Institute on South Grand View Street near MacArthur Park into the first home of the Woman's Building, which opened to the public in November of that year. From 1973 to 1980, Karras documented the daily life of the Woman's Building while also taking part in the Feminist Studio Workshop and the Women's Graphics Center. During this time, she also obtained her Master of Arts in art education from Goddard College and produced her own feminist photography and books addressing gender roles, especially in relation to race and ethnicity and her Greek-American heritage. In the late 1970s, she received a Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) grant, which she used to create a project for the city's bus system titled Both Here and There. This project was later included as part of the group exhibition Issue: Social Strategies by Women Artists, curated by Lucy Lippard for the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) in London.
Karras became certified as a registered biological photographer and worked in that capacity at the Los Angeles County-University of Southern California Medical Center and the University of California, Los Angeles Medical Center from 1980 to 1988. In 1983, Karras opened Maria Karras Photography, a creative portrait studio in Pasadena, California where the artist continues to work.
In addition to the ICA London, Karras's work has been shown at the Woman's Building, the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C., and the Brooklyn Museum. In 2011, she and Marguerite Elliot published The Woman's Building and Feminist Art Education, 1973-1991: A Pictorial Herstory in conjunction with the Getty's initiative, Pacific Standard Time: Art in LA, 1945-1980.

Scope and Content of Collection

The Maria Karras collection comprises ephemera and photographic documentation of the Woman's Building and affiliated groups such as the Feminist Studio Workshop, as well as projects by Maria Karras and other Woman's Building artists. Series I comprises photographic materials that document activities at the Woman's Building, especially from 1973 to 1980, and various Woman's Building ephemera collected by Maria Karras from 1973 to 2007, such as posters, articles, publications, and promotional materials. Series I also includes artists' books, mail art, and exhibition posters and announcements by individual artists affiliated with the Woman's Building. Series II consists of Maria Karras's own work from her period at the Woman's Building, as well as her 2011 collaboration with Marguerite Elliot on The Woman's Building and Feminist Art Education, 1973-1991: A Pictorial Herstory . Karras's 1978-1979 project that documents the experiences of thirteen bicultural women living in Los Angeles, Both Here and There, is especially well-represented. For both Series I and Series II, most sheets of negatives and slides are accompanied by corresponding digital files.

Arrangement

The collection is arranged in two series: and Series I. Woman's Building papers and photographs, 1972-2018, undated; Series II. Maria Karras's projects, 1973-1980, 2006-2018.

Series I. Woman's Building papers and photographs, 1972-2018, undated

Physical Description: 8.2 Linear Feet (17 boxes, 2 flatfile folders. Computer media: 40.7 GB, [524 files])

Scope and Content Note

Series I includes ephemera and photographic materials (slides, prints, negatives, and digital reference images) that document events, people, and daily activities at the Woman's Building, as well as artwork produced by individual artists affiliated with the Woman's Building. Maria Karras's personal artwork and projects are included in Series II.

Arrangement

 

Series I.A. Photographic materials, 1973-2018

Physical Description: 5.4 Linear Feet (14 boxes. Computer media: 40.2 GB [521 files])

Scope and Content Note

Series I.A includes prints, slides, negatives, and contact sheets that document the events, people, and daily activities of the Woman's Building from 1973 to 1980. Events significantly represented in this subseries include the renovations and grand openings of both the Grand View Street and Spring Street buildings, the Women in Design and Women's Word's conferences in 1975, Leslie Labowitz and Suzanne Lacy's In Mourning and In Rage performance, as well as weekly meetings, classes, protests, and exhibition preparations and openings. In addition to photographing Feminist Studio Workshop students and faculty, Karras documented the visits of outside artists such as Anaïs Nin, Lucy Lippard, Rita Mae Brown, Grandma Prisbrey, and other groups affiliated with the Woman's Building, such as The Waitresses and Sisterhood Bookstore.
The majority of materials in Series I.A are black-and-white 35mm negatives. Each sheet of negatives is accompanied by a contact sheet that corresponds to a digital file. Nearly all slide sheets also have a corresponding digital file. Most photographic prints are black-and-white, but there are a small number of color prints as well.
Although the photographs themselves were taken between 1973 and 1998, the later dates (2011-2018) refer to the latest dates of modification of the digital files. Software formats were identified using a DROID (Digital Record Object IDentification) report from information recorded in the PRONOM technical registry.
Most file titles, descriptions of events, identifications of individual people, and dates were taken from the inventory provided by Maria Karras or from labels on the slides or negatives. In a few instances, the title was devised by the cataloger when no information was available. More precise information on dates was provided in some cases by the timeline on the Woman's Building website. See Terry Wolverton, "The Woman's Building Timeline," the Woman's Building, accessed November 2019, http://thewomansbuilding.org/timeline.html.
