Figures Of Thinking: Convergences In Contemporary Cultures

Nina Katchadourian
Mona Hatoum

Adrienne Heinrich

Ok, Here's another show that is likely kick ass, that I missed ( anyone wana give me a ride ). It's in Youngstown Ohio and was co- curated by Vicky A. Clark and Sandhini Poddar. and includes a number of major woman artists, ( anyone wana email me images? ) and Pittsburgh's Adrienne Hienrich.

Here's some dope from the curators statement-- which is not on the museums website.

While not immediately obvious, all of the artists are women, but unlike exhibitions of the past decades from Making Their Mark: Women Artists Moving into the Mainstream, 1970-1985 (1989) to Inside the Visible (1996) to Sexual Politics (1996), feminism isn’t foregrounded in this show. Issues of gender, race, and religion inform the work of these artists but do not define it. We have assembled a group of artists we deeply respect to initiate a conversation about our world. This dialogue will hopefully offer up possibilities for confrontation with how we sometimes too easily define and limit understanding. The curators and artists will present possibilities, but so too will the viewer, whose own experiences and insights will continue the conversation in new venues.

Some of the artists Rina Banerjee, Lesley Dill, Ellen Gallagher, Mona Hatoum, Adrienne Heinrich, Nina Katchadourian, Wangechi Mutu ( anyone wana give me a ride??? )
