King Woman, curated by Mashonda Tifrere, kicks off Pen + Brush’s fall 2017 exhibition and sets the tone for the coming year in exhibitions at Pen + Brush.
In collaboration with Pen + Brush gallery, ArtLeadHER presents “King Woman,” a show that recognizes works of art that are not only by women, but are the embodiment of autonomy, determination, and precision of skill.
The artists featured in this large-scale exhibition engage the viewer on humanist terms while harnessing the strength implicit in emotions, such as empathy and vulnerability. The mission of King Woman is to aesthetically prove that there is freedom, power and an inner ability to rule each of our own kingdoms as modern day women.
What’s more, this group exhibition will feature the work of 25 visual artists (including performance and video installations) and encompass contemporary women artists ranging from emerging to established creators. It is through this critical pairing of recognized and less well-known women artists, that we hope to showcase the talent, power and breadth of the work that women can create.
“King Woman” will feature visual artwork from Rebecca Allan, Azi Amiri, Ingrid Baars, Hunter Clarke, Donna Festa, Carole Feuerman, Lola Flash, Meredith Marsone, Yvonne Michaels, Stephanie Hirsch, Emma Hopkins, Khakis Kennedy, Kit King, Jane Olin, Reisha Perlmutter, Renee Phillips, Trixie Pitts, A.V. Rockwell, Victoria Selbach, Lynn Spoor, Swoon, Taira, Roos Van Der Vliet, Elizabeth Waggett and Lynnie Z.
