Mary Beth Edelson's gathering boxes featured in exhibition at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum | Gender and art | Scoop.it

RIDGEFIELD, CONN.- The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is bringing together six of Mary Beth Edelson’s ground-breaking story gathering boxes in a participatory exhibition that invites visitor contributions. The project, which was initiated in 1972, is still ongoing and has encapsulated an evolving feminist art legacy and evidenced the very first vestiges of what is familiarly known today as “social practice.”

Mary Beth Edelson: Six Story Gathering Boxes (1971–2014) will remain on view until April 5, 2015.

Women Artists Dominate in Art Basel Miami Beach's Sculpture Park

Women Artists Dominate in Art Basel Miami Beach's Sculpture Park | Gender and art | Scoop.it

Detail of Jessica Stockholder, “Angled Triangle” (2014)

 

"Amid all the predictable fare in Art Basel Miami Beach’s Public sector, installed in Collins Park alongside the Bass Museum of Art — your Ernesto Neto hammock contraption, your Justin Matherly concrete-and-walker figure, your shiny bronze Elmgreen & Dragset provocation, your Georg Baselitz primitivist giant — is a set of bravura works by women artists. Their glowing, ungainly, and frequently flippant sculptures are improbably well suited to the setting."

Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden. Eva Kot'átková. Experiment for 7 Body Parts. | Gender and art | Scoop.it

From 9 November 2014 to 1st March 2015


This autumn, the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden presents a comprehensive solo exhibition of works by czech artist Eva Kot'átková (*1982). In her work, Kot'átková examines educational and psychological concepts of disciplining and its effects on individuals and society.


Her artistic means of expression range from collages, texts, and objects to installations with performative elements. In expansive experimental arrangements she reflects on topics such as corporal penalisation and fragmentation by apparatuses and predefined postures as well as the normative use of language. In this context, practices in educational institutions, hospitals, psychiatries and nursing homes serve as a source of inspiration. Works by Eva Kot'átková were exhibited at the biennals in Sydney and Venice, recently she received the Dorothea von Stetten award of the Kunstmuseum Bonn.

Art Exhibit in Washington Explores the Madonna as Woman, Mother, and Idea

Art Exhibit in Washington Explores the Madonna as Woman, Mother, and Idea | Gender and art | Scoop.it

Sofonisba Anguissola, Self-Portrait at the Easel, 1556.

 

She's the most recognizable woman in the world. Her image spans a wide range of centuries and styles, from reverential portraits by old masters like Michelangelo to cheap plaster statues to the controversial collage by Chris Ofili of a black Madonna studded with elephant dung that caused an uproar when exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum in 1999. 

 

But who is the Virgin Mary, and what do we see when we gaze at her portrait? On December 5, the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C., opens "Picturing Mary: Woman, Mother, Idea"—an exhibit of 70 artworks, from the 14th through the 19th centuries, lent by the Vatican Museums, the Uffizi Gallery, and the Louvre, among others.

Julie Verhoeven | e-flux | Gender and art | Scoop.it

The ICA has invited artist and designer Julie Verhoeven to respond to the Fox Reading Room, creating an immersive installation that explores concepts of femininity and modes of display. Primarily known for her work as a fashion designer and illustrator, Verhoeven here creates what she describes as a “grotto of visual excess”: an installation that is playful, yet visually cacophonic and ominous defying and questioning our own perceptions of femininity, gender and taste.

Louisiana Museum of Modern Art exhibits works by German artist Paula Modersohn-Becker | Gender and art | Scoop.it

HUMLEBÆK.- For many people the German artist Paula Modersohn-Becker (1876-1907) will be a new acquaintance, while others may remember her from the well-attended Self-Portrait exhibition at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in 2012, which included four of her paintings. Now there is an opportunity to get to know the artist’s work better, since over the winter Louisiana is showing the first major exhibition of Paula Modersohn-Becker’s work in Scandinavia. The exhibition features 150 works, a good 90 paintings and just under 60 drawings, several in large format, and focuses on the artist’s central genres – figure paintings, portraits and self-portraits.

Grande dame des arts, elle est décédée à 101 ans.

 

"On la croyait immortelle tant, jusqu’au bout, elle se sera tenue informée de ce qui lui tenait le plus à cœur : l’art et les artistes.

En juin, nous visitions avec elle l’exposition florilège du Centre de la Gravure qui, entre autres perles, exposait des estampes d’artistes japonais qu’elle avait offertes au musée. Elle était ravie.

 

Pour ses cent ans, le Boijmans van Beuningen de Rotterdam, dont elle dirigea d’une main audacieuse, de 1962 à 1978, le département moderne et contemporain, lui avait rendu le plus juste des hommages en exposant, au fil d’accrochages successifs, le meilleur des 500 acquisitions qu’elle y fit, les surréalistes en premier lieu. Méconnus aux Pays-Bas, ils avaient fait une entrée fracassante dans le musée par la volonté de sa grande dame."

Aux arts etc... - Die Dada La Dada She Dada : une expo sur les femmes dadaïstes

Aux arts etc... - Die Dada La Dada She Dada : une expo sur les femmes dadaïstes | Gender and art | Scoop.it

Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven, New York, 7. Dezember 1915.

 

Le titre de cette expo est déjà rythmé comme un poème dadaïste. Et il va droit au but: non seulement, il y avait des femmes dans le mouvement Dada, mais aussi, elles venaient de toutes les grandes villes de l'époque. Ce fut donc l'un des premiers mouvements artistiques à permettre aux femmes de s'exprimer quasiment à égalité avec les hommes et à être vraiment international, même si le berceau en fut Zurich en 1916.

Des œuvres d'art radicales, de la poésie expérimentales, des actions artistiques subversives, des montages percutants. Mais surtout beaucoup d'esprit, de l'humour. Tout cela, c'est Dada!

Lina Bo Bardi, Museu de Arte de São Paulo (MASP)

 

"Lina Bo Bardi 100: Brazil's Alternative Path to Modernism is the most comprehensive assessment of the internationally renowned architect to take place outside of Brazil. The Italian-Brazilian architect Lina Bo Bardi (1914-1992) defined her own particular artistic path through outstanding designs starting at the mid-twentieth century. In architecture as well as stage sets, graphic art, fashion and furniture design, she implemented impulses of Modernism, but interpreted them quite individually."

BROOKLYN, NY.- Chitra Ganesh: Eyes of Time, an exhibition featuring a multimedia, site-specific installation created by Brooklyn artist Chitra Ganesh and an artist-curated selection from the Brooklyn Museum collection, will be on view in the Herstory Gallery of the Brooklyn Museum’s Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art from December 12, 2014, through July 2015.

 

The presentation takes its inspiration in part from the Hindu goddess Kali, one of the figures honored with a place setting in Judy Chicago’s The Dinner Party, on permanent view in the adjacent gallery. Responding to this unique context, Ganesh’s exhibition continues her ongoing exploration of iconic female characters, such as goddesses and female superheroes, and how they connect to contemporary feminist ideas and imagery.

Hannah Sawtell “#STANDARDISER” at Focal Point Gallery, Southend-on-Sea / Mousse Contemporary Art Magazine | Gender and art | Scoop.it

Sawtell’s multi-disciplinary work is concerned with the consumption of images and objects in a globally connected society, and aims to provoke debate around the technology of access, labour, capital and surplus, desire and excess. Describing her method as investigating “the screen as a lens”, and using the Internet to research and shape her approach, Sawtell’s work exploits the processes and materials accessible in the current culture of connectivity.

"In her first solo exhibition in Turkey, Iron Inside Out, Çağdaş Kahriman brings together the series she has produced between 2011 and 2014.

Based on the integration and disintegration of diverse media like drawing, collage/decollage and animation, the exhibition “Iron Inside Out” derives its name from an ironing technique recommended for sensitive materials. Whilst the word “iron/ironing” evokes a sense of hardness, ruthlessness (Iron Lady), pressure and oppression, the artist also uses the term in order to emphasize the fragility of her materials and abstractify her creative process,..."

Jana Euler | e-flux

Jana Euler | e-flux | Gender and art | Scoop.it

The exhibition at the Bonner Kunstverein is the first major institutional solo exhibition of Jana Euler (b. 1982 in Friedberg) in Germany.

 

At the center of Euler’s painting, sculpture, and text works stands the questioning of identity, as it is formed nowadays by cultural, social, and technological forces. Euler, who graduated from the Städelschule in Frankfurt a.M. in 2008, belongs to a generation of artists who completely grew up with the internet as an autonomous reality and have thus concerned themselves with the resultant shifts in social processes and world-views alongside ideas surrounding self-perception and the construction of identity. She hones in even further on gender-specific questions and the role of the artist in society.

On connaît moins les autres facettes de sa vie romanesque, comme sa courte carrière d’actrice de films muets à Hollywood.

malek's curator insight, December 6, 3:59 PM

Today, we seem so at peace as we continue to objectify women (and men to a lesser degree) on a daily basis. I'm terrified this culture will continue for my children, and one day they'll dishonor the beautiful people around them, just because they're not dancing naked in front of them.
