Alas, Almas, Mujeres: Wings, Souls, Women
January 29 – February 29, 2020
Opening Reception: 1/29/2020 at 7PM in the LES Gallery at the Clemente Center!!
Alas, Almas, Mujeres: Wings, Souls, Women explores themes of interior/public selves, of memory/movement, of belonging/standing out, of sacrifice/freedom, of trauma/reparation – while also cracking open these binaries for new, multi-faceted and multi-dimensional life to emerge. Or, per artist Victoria Restler, “to make work in and around emotion, or sensations that might be ‘seeable but not sayable,’ as visual sociologist Wendy Luttrell suggests”, and/or as artist Valerie Kelemen strives for a “Femino-Futuristic escape to a world of muscular femininity where injustices have been rectified, waste has been integrated, colonialism implodes, and new life thrive”.
