A New Subjectivity: Figurative Painting after 2000
This exhibition composed entirely of paintings by women, attempts to categorize Expressionism in new terms. Referencing cartoons, fashion spreads, and personal narratives, the artists address the fragmentation of individual subjectivity in a technological world. The new figuration is thereby performative, rather than prescriptive, and both absurd and sincere approaches to the subject matter are embraced by the artists. The exhibition features works by Gina Beavers, Katherine Bernhardt, Katherine Bradford, Jackie Gendel, Liz Markus, and Rose Wylie. The Guest Curator for this exhibition is Jason Stopa, Visiting Assistant Professor, Fine Arts, Pratt Institute.
