Women with their Work II: Reflections

Women with their Work II: Reflections

February 26 – April 20, 2018

Women with their Work is a series of all-women group art exhibitions, co-curated by Peter Prinz and Jessica Dallow, Ph.D, The impetus for this series is SOE’s 1988 exhibition titled Blue Angel: The Decline of Sexual Stereotypes in Post-Feminist Sculpture. The theme of that exhibition, along with the current discussions about women’s rights, led to the search for an examination and discussion of issues related to women’s issues and their contributions to the visual arts.

Women with their Work II, the second exhibition in the series, features work by Elisabeth Pellathy of Birmingham, Alabama; Anna Campbell of Grand Rapids, Michigan; and Stacy Lynn Waddell of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, who are working within the theme of identity.

A poetry mash-up will be held where local poets respond to works in the exhibition, to be followed by a panel discussion led by T. Marie King. Participating poets are Beth Bradley, Salaam Green, BeShaun “Shaun Judah” Leavell, Queens, and Laura Secord

As a Co-Founder of Space One Eleven, Prinz has organized and presented hundreds of exhibitions exploring social justice issues. Dallow is Associate Professor of Art History at the University of Alabama at Birmingham Department of Art and Art History, and is an authority in the field of modern and contemporary feminist art.
