Plural Possibilities & The Female Body
Henry Art Gallery, Seattle, WA - To May 9
This show is part of the gallery’s involvement in the Feminist Art Coalition, a nationwide initiative that “seeks to generate cultural awareness about feminist thought, experience and action.” Curators Nina Bozicnik and Ann Poulson chose works by 20-plus artists from the permanent collection, supplemented by works on loan. Through painting, prints, photos and video, the artists “explore intersecting identities and interlocking forms of oppression.” Kiki Smith, Ana Mendieta and Chakaia Booker join photographers Catherine Opie and Graciela Iturbide, among others.
