A Brooklyn artist self-organizes an exhibition in her own studio to make a brilliant, affirmative counter-statement to the problem of women’s under-representation in museum exhibitions and biennials.
The 2014 Whitney Houston Biennial: I’m Every Woman
Sunday, March 9, 4-8pm (one night only)
20 Jay Street, Suite 207, Dumbo, Brooklyn
“The biennial comes as a response to the continuing minimal representation of women artists in major museums and galleries. To bring some balance to the art institutions in New York this season, curator and artist Christine Finley will host more than fifty female artists from a varied range of geographic and cultural backgrounds, disciplines, methodologies, and generations. The artists studio will be transformed into an inviting, living space, a salon filled with work from artists including Mickalene Thomas, Guerilla Girls, Swoon, Sienna Shields, and Annie Sprinkle & Beth Stephens. The aim of bringing together so many creative voices is to sing a collective song that celebrates the contributions of pioneer female artists and marks a moment in our communal trajectory.”
