CAMP: Show and Discussion
Join our artist talks, discussion, and celebration of the Women's History Month on March 13, 6 pm at Gallery MC (545 West 52 St).
The event is part of the popup show CAMP, an art exhibition exploring female chosen and forced isolation.
RE: ARTISTE International Art Organization and The Espejo Organization for the Arts (EOarts) will present “CAMP”, an exhibition of works made by male and female artists that explores women’s chosen and forced isolation.
Programmed to open during Women’s History Month, the show will showcase the works of national and international artists
Hera HaeSoo Kim, Hadieh Afshani, Izabella Demavlys, Poshya Kakl, Sena Kwon, and T. Lawrence Wheatman.
“When we think about the word ‘camp’ we picture an isolated territory. We wanted to take this concept - literally and metaphorically - to refer to women’s voluntarily or forcefully placement in their personal lives and in their social setting,” explains RE:ARTISTE Director Natalie Burlutskaya.
The exhibition, that is a continuation of the project “The Female Power” started by Burtluskaya four years ago to highlight the role of women of various professions and occupations, is a collaboration with EOarts to promote the works of international emerging and mid-career artists.
“We are interested in presenting an array of different cultural backgrounds that will initiate a dialogue about women’s embraced and imposed displacement, from a personal and community level,” says Kika Espejo, Director of EOarts. “We want to explore the two sides of the same coin - joy and suffering, fun and torture.”
The show will showcase multimedia pieces that will mix psychological states of denial, restriction, memories, love and also will pose questions about issues on immigration, religion, war, and illness. The one-night event on March 13 will host artist talks and the discussion with the guests.
