For those of you who missed it, here is the full video from our recent event at The New School in conjunction with our Fall 2015 Main Gallery Exhibition Archive Bound, featuring Independent Curator Karen E. Jones in conversation with Frida Kahlo of the Guerrilla Girls. Thanks to The New School for co-hosting the event and producing the video!
Our fall exhibitions, including Archive Bound, are on view through Saturday the 12th.
Guerrilla Girls are an anonymous group of feminist, female artists devoted to fighting sexism and racism within the art world. The group formed in New York City in 1985 with the mission of bringing gender and inequality within the fine arts into focus within the greater community. Guerrilla Girls names are pseudonyms generally based on dead female artists. Members go by names such as Kathe Kollwitz, Alma Thomas, Rosalba Carriera, Frida Kahlo, Julia de Burgos, Hannah Höch, Zubeida Agha, Chiyo Uno, and Shigeko Kubota. The Guerrilla Girls use pseudonyms as a way to not forget female artists.
Archive Bound, organized by Independent Curator Karen E. Jones, examines methodologies within the presentation, documentation, historiography, and exhibition display of non-object based and site-specific artworks. Additionally, the exhibition includes books, photographs, and ephemera associated with Conceptual, Performance, and Site-Specific Art practices. Several first generation avant-garde figures lay the groundwork for a discourse on the contemporary utilization of these crucial genres.
