The Moment. The Backdrop. The Persona. is an examination of the uses of narrative in contemporary art from the collection of Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz.

Making Space: Beyond a Room Opening Reception

Thursday, November 30, 6-9pm

at Rosemary Duffy Larson Gallery, Broward College Central Campus
Join us for the opening reception of Making Space: Beyond a Room, an exhibition of works from the collection of Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz, inspired by Virginia Woolf’s seminal 1929 essay A Room of One’s Own.

Created in response to Woolf’s conclusion that ‘a room of one’s own’ is implicitly needed for creative production, co-curators, Girls’ Club gallery director Sarah Michelle Rupert and former Girls’ Club interns Sofia Bastidas and Jeanie Giebel, chose works from the collection that explore the idea of an artist’s creative space in contemporary practice.

Work by Teresa Diehl, Sarah Jones, Mel Kadel, Rania Matar, Ania Moussawel, Peggy Levison Nolan, Mickalene Thomas, Amy Wilson, Su-en Wong, and others.
