Unveiled




Craftswoman House will open her doors with the group exhibition Unveiled, a show that features works by six west-coast artists who explore feminist content. The exhibit includes works by Launa Bacon, Ursula Brookbank, Wendy Kveck, Freya Prowe, Cindy Rehm, Angela Simione.

Unveiled coincides with the 39th anniversary of Womanhouse, the first public exhibition of feminist art organized in January 1972, by Judy Chicago and Miriam Schapiro. The original collaborative project was presented in a deserted mansion in Hollywood, whereas the new venue is a 1924 Craftsman House located in the historic Orange Heights tract of Pasadena.

Unveiled includes painting, drawing, video, and site-specific room installations created in memory of Womanhouse. The library will be transformed into a haunting underwater environment with Brookbank’s The Splendor Trap. Through a process of staining and accumulation, Rehm will create The Curse, her response to Chicago’s Menstruation Bathroom. The kitchen will highlight Kveck’s Meateater, which features a reclining woman laid out like a body, readied for dissection. Bacon will present her video I Sat Beauty on my Knees; Found Her Bitter, Therefore I Injured Her in the study where the work was performed and filmed. Simone and Prowe will occupy the living room and hallway with their paintings. The garden will also feature installations by Bacon and Brookbank.

quote from vallum magazine this morning

Part Two, “Poetry and Anarchy,” charts the trajectory of Webb’s “anarchist poetics” (89) away from “the lyric self” toward “the multitude of others” with the poem as a place of “communion” (89). Collis suggests that the form of the serial poem, which Webb increasingly favoured, is “the anarchist form par excellence – the formal analogue of anarchism’s decentralist philosophy” (90).
