女性图像

2022年5月1日-6月5日,独立映像艺术空间推出群展《女性图像》。

1971年,美国艺术史学家琳达·诺克林撰写的文章《为什么没有伟大的女性艺术家》,被视为女性主义艺术史及艺术理论的先驱之作,深具影响力。50年后的今天,当我们再次提出这个问题,人们的脑海中浮现出怎样的回答?

当今社会探讨女性社会身份,不仅在谈论平等和赋权,还在讨论女性创造力能为世界带来的潜在变革。在这个展览中,我们希望倾听女性的声音,看见她们对自身、对社会、对世界的看法。

同时,这不是一个仅仅面向女性艺术家的展览,我们包容性别、种族、民族、信仰、年龄等方面的多样性,希望看到不同人群对女性的刻画,了解他们是如何看待当下社会的女性以及女性所扮演的角色。

正如诺克林在文章中所言,“作为伟人王国中的弱势一方,妇女能够揭示普遍的制度和知识中的弱点,同时打破虚假的感觉,参与一个新的制度的创立,在这个制度体系中,真正的伟大是向所有人敞开的挑战,男人或女人,只要他们愿意勇敢地进行必要的冒险,跃向未知世界。”

参展艺术家:Amy Meng, 安娜·阿克塞诺娃, 傅文俊, 杰奎琳·梅, 珍·特雷尔, Lu, 奈·泽尔卡, 纳特里安·布朗, 萨马·埃洛米, 帕梅拉·查拉比, 莱利·基齐尔, 邱枘崎

Images of Women

From May 1, 2022 to June 5, 2022, Independent & Image Art Space is glad to present a group exhibition “Images of Women”.

In 1971, the American art historian Linda Nochlin published an article Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists, which was regarded as a pioneering work in feminist art history and art theory, and made a great influence. Now, about 50 years later, when we ask this question again, what answers pop into people’s minds?

Today’s society discusses women’s social identities, not only about equality and empowerment, but also about the potential changes that women’s creativity can bring to the world. In this exhibition, we hope to listen to the voices of women and to know their views on themselves, society, and the world.

At the same time, this is not an exhibition only for female artists. We embrace diversity in terms of gender, race, ethnicity, belief, age, etc. We hope to see the images of women made by different groups of people, and to understand how they view women and the roles women play in our world.

As Nochlin said in the article: “Rather, using as a vantage point their situation as underdogs in the realm of grandeur, and outsiders in that of ideology, women can reveal institutional and intellectual weaknesses in general, and, at the same time that they destroy false consciousness, take part in the creation of institutions in which clear thought—and true greatness—are challenges open to anyone, man or woman, courageous enough to take the necessary risk, the leap into the unknown.”

Artists: Amy Meng, Anna Axenova, Fu Wenjun, Jacqueline May, Jenn Terrell, Lu, Nae Zerka, Naterrian Brown, Osama Elolemy, Pamela Chrabieh, Riley Kizziar, Ruiqi Qiu.
