Hot under the collar: Venice Biennale artist uses 27,000 neckties for installation

Hot under the collar: Venice Biennale artist uses 27,000 neckties for installation | Gender and art | Scoop.it

UK-based Israeli artist Michal Cole says work is ‘silent embroidered scream’ against global patriarchy.


Few items symbolise masculine pomp and power quite like a necktie – they sit around boardroom tables, witness business deals, attend interviews and are loosened in pubs. But, at this year’s Venice Biennale, one artist has turned 27,000 of these potent strips of silk into a vast artwork which is a “silent embroidered scream” against the global patriarchy.

Belgian Art Prize - Otobong Nkanga

Belgian Art Prize - Otobong Nkanga | Gender and art | Scoop.it

"Otobong Nkanga’s multidisciplinary practice spans drawing, photography, installation, video and performance, and focuses on the interrelation between environment, architecture and history. Her work weaves together concerns about land, natural resources, architecture, the value connected to them and the dynamic status of remembrance. [...]

For the BelgianArtPrize, Otobong Nkanga is interested in the notions of corrosion, oxidation, impregnation and contamination. With three textile pieces and a steel sculpture, she continues to explore the transformation processes of materials."

2 or 3 Tigers - HKW, Berlin

2 or 3 Tigers - HKW, Berlin | Gender and art | Scoop.it

Lieko Shiga, part of the 'Rasen Kaigan' series, 2009


"'2 or 3 Tigers' is a group exhibition about colonialism, media and modernity, specifically in East Asia. The figure of the tiger itself is the medium through which mythological, colonial and modern histories are evoked and folded into the present, highlighting unstable identities and shifting ground, as well as structural continuities and modernization ideologies. Modernity is reflected as a colonial pattern inscribed in the history of nation states, militarization and financialization, but also as a an ontological revolution, as an order that fundamentally upsets social organization, cultural patterns and indeed cosmologies, and that in most societies in the past 200 years has led to a profound crisis of consciousness."

Chromatic Scale: Prints by Polly Apfelbaum | National Museum of Women in the Arts | Gender and art | Scoop.it

"Polly Apfelbaum (b. 1955, Abington, PA) employs bright colors and abstract motifs in her prints, using methods that are simultaneously ordered and spontaneous. The performative aspect of her well-known large-scale installations carries over to her printmaking process. Chromatic Scale explores her distinctive approach to prints and how it relates to her work in painting, sculpture, and installation."

« Alice Neel : Peintre de la vie moderne » – Fondation Vincent van Gogh, Arles

« Alice Neel : Peintre de la vie moderne » – Fondation Vincent van Gogh, Arles | Gender and art | Scoop.it

Cette rétrospective sur Alice Neel (1900-1984) – l’une des plus importantes artistes nord-américaines, pourtant longtemps ignorée de son vivant – est le fruit d’un partenariat entre plusieurs institutions européennes. À travers l’exposition, s’exprime le souhait de mettre en lumière les qualités de cette artiste au pinceau réaliste. Les portraits de Neel, empreints d’une forte dimension psychologique, témoignent de près d’un siècle d’évolutions dans les comportements envers le genre et l’ethnie, et des bouleversements dans la mode au sein de la société américaine.
