A study of woman as object in art.
The history of art has largely been written by works that resulted from and served to perpetuate the male gaze. These works tell us a great deal about the roles women have played in art and society, and also about how women are viewed today. Altered Esthetic's February exhibition, Bitter Fruit, will examine how contemporary artists--both male and female--deal with this shared history, and where it has left us. We hope to illuminate the issue through a selection of work that comments not only upon this history, but upon the possibility of a future located outside the conventional narrative history of art.
The Bitter Fruits exhibit will feature sculpture, painting, photography, and performance art from over 80 artists.
Please join us for the opening reception Friday February 1st, 2008 - 7pm-10pm
in the main gallery of Altered Esthetics
