A New Subjectivity: Figurative Painting after 2000 is an exhibition composed entirely of paintings by women that attempts to categorize Expressionism in new terms. The featured artists include Gina Beavers, Katherine Bernhardt, Katherine Bradford, Jackie Gendel, Liz Markus, and Rose Wylie. 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 the absurd and sincere approaches alike are embraced as subject matter by the artists in the exhibition. Thursday, Nov. 9, 5 p.m. Curator’s Lecture: Jason Stopa
Reception to follow, 6-8 p.m. {Exhibition: Oct. 15-Dec. 15}
