Curated by Marcia G. Yerman
April 5, 2007 - May 5, 2007
Forum Gallery
745 Fifth Avenue
New York, N.Y. 10151

The entire exhibition can be viewed at www.forumgallery.com/currentseason. Here's the Gallery Press Release:

New York, NY April 5, 2007: Forum Gallery presents a group exhibition featuring 22 works by contemporary women artists. In conjunction with The Feminist Art Project, a nationwide initiative celebrating the aesthetic, intellectual, and political impact of women on the visual arts, the artists in The Feminist Figure use the vocabulary of figuration to explore contemporary concerns.

Curator Marcia G. Yerman has included artists with a conscious focus on feminist intent and content. The exhibiting artists present works dealing with aspects of self-portraiture, identity, aging, and the preservation of the environment. Employing a variety of media including pastel, ceramic, fabric, painting, sculpture, and new media, the artists present points of view that simultaneously echo each other’s concerns, and embody a distinctive and individual approach.

In her catalogue essay, Yerman states: "Collectively, the artists in The Feminist Figure engage others in the possibility of understanding the female experience in new and challenging ways. Through their unique perspectives, a fuller awareness of humanity is shared."

Artists featured in the exhibition include: Micaela Amato, Lena Cronqvist, Lesley Dill, Kim Dingle, Diane Edison, Martha Mayer Erlebacher, Kathleen Gilje, Susan Hauptman, Julie Heffernan, Rebecca Horn, Deb King, Holly Lane, Jane Lund, Diana Moore, Irene Hardwicke Olivieri, Verónica Riedel, Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson, Lezley Saar, Esther Shimazu, Kiki Smith, Maria Tomasula, and Cybèle Young

The opening reception with artists and curator will take place on Thursday, April 5th at Forum Gallery, 745 Fifth Avenue at 57th Street, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. A 48 page full-color catalogue, with a foreword by Gloria Steinem and essay by Marcia G. Yerman accompanies the exhibition. For more information please contact the gallery.

Location: Turret Guest Bathroom, Pygmalion-First Floor

"BANGKA (2007)," INK AND GOUACHE ON PAPER by JENIFFER WOFFORD
Location: TBD

TENTH MENTION

UPDATE:

I'm delighted to learn that I successfully bid for "Bangka", a work on paper by Jenifer Wofford. I got the work through a fundraiser for Intersection for the Arts. An image of "Bangka" is available on Jenifer's blog where she also discusses how the work is the first of a series of images stemming from photographs she took of bangkas, or Filipino boats: "I really loved the weird formal tension of the bamboo and wires lashed together on these bangkas, so I thought I’d try a slightly abstracted study of one."

World Factory presents over 30 international artists whose works respond to the issues and conflicts within the global “free market” economy. The outsourcing of manufacturing from “First World” to “Third World” countries causes serious impacts on both sides: pollution, displacement of populations, excessive exploitation of natural resources, and uneven development resulting in further divisions between the rich and the poor. Concurrently, the formation of a global consumerist culture is exerting significant influences on local cultures. World factories are not only producing material goods for the consumer market but are also producing a new social consciousness and mobilization. The artists in World Factory are responding to these conditions with different models and new methods of creation. Taking the form of an exhibition-in-progress, World Factory uses a variety of strategies for presentation including the overlapping phases of the gallery installation, workshops, film screenings, seminars, off-site and site-specific projects, and web-based works.
