WOMEN’S ART NOW shines a vivid light on what’s long been missing from the socio-cultural and socio-political equations at work in much of the world today: that missing factor being equal input from women.
Thus all the works in this exhibition, though not necessarily about women, are by women.
The only other criteria for the selection of artworks is that they be masterfully executed, authentic expressions of the artists’ identities and consequent points of view. The field from which the artists were selected was defined in an equally simple manner - the artists have either crossed paths with the gallery and/or the gallery has collected their work.
Having cast this modest curatorial net absent of an aesthetic agenda other than artistry and authenticity, this show nevertheless exhibits a broad cross-section from the canons of modernism, post-modernism, feminism and post-feminism. Styles range from literal to abstract, geometric to expressionist; media range from traditional painting, graphics and sculpture to conceptual and other “avant-garde” forms.
ALL PROCEEDS FROM WOMEN’S ART NOW WILL BE DIRECTLY CONTRIBUTED TO WOMEN’S VOICES NOW.
