This piece of mine will be included in a show "THE PERSONAL IS POLITICAL" at the Koehnline Museum of Art!
The upcoming show deals with the transformative power of women's art. :) My new series of embroideries draws on images of women as fetish objects and utilizes a traditional female medium. This address the role of women themselves in the subjegation of other women and how socially acceptable it is.
October 4 - 26, 2012
Sponsored by the Koehnline Museum of Art and the Women's and Gender Studies Program at Oakton Community College.
Ever since Kate Millet coined the phrase "the personal is political" in her landmark 1970 work Sexual Politics, the words have continued to resonate in contemporary feminism. In this election year, women artists will be challenged to create works that engage with and respond to the multiple meanings in Millet’s words.
