Curated by Roman Stollenwerk
January 21– March 13, 2014
Reception for the artists on January 21, 6:00-8:00pm, with light refreshments and music from DJ Patrick Miller.
Unruly is an exhibition of work by women artists who challenge the parameters of feminine behavior by engaging in unruly behavior in their art practices. In the pursuit of their artistic and conceptual interests these artists use assertive sexuality, bawdy and idiosyncratic humor, surreal and powerful imagery, and public spectacle and engagement in their work. Whether or not it is the ultimate goal for these artists, in the process their work also becomes a stance against oppressive standards of femininity. The work in Unruly pushes visitors to reconsider expectations about feminine behavior and asks viewers to consider whether society tries to label the behavior of certain women as weird or unruly in order to discredit or nullify their expression.
Unruly is curated by Roman Stollenwerk and will feature Elizabeth Jackson (NV), Fay Ku (NY), Candice Lin (CA), Evona Lynae (CA), Rachel Mason (NY), The Miracle Whips (CA), Yoshie Sakai (CA), Amy Sarkisian (CA), Jessica Wimbley (CA), and Antonia Wright (FL).
Exhibitions and events are free and open to the public. Park in the North Parking Lot. Permits can be purchased at machines located in the lot. Parking is $1 for one hour or $4 for all day.
