Smack Mellon in collaboration with Kentler International Drawing Space is presenting a provocative (re)examination of feminist art today through the work of 20 international, emerging women artists.
Re:Generation, the show's title, alludes to the 1970's Feminist Art Movement and aims to reconnect that time with the dialogue surrounding feminism today.
Re:Generation represents the work of women artists from Argentina, Canada, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Pakistan, The Philippines, Russia, Tunisia, and the United States. Re: Generation asserts that there is an intrinsic distinctiveness to the work of women artists. Each work in the show is a testament to the artist's desire to develop a means of speaking through her work, whether she is untangling her own cultural history, grappling with a social and political landscape that surrounds her, or aiming to relay an intangible emotional reality.
