Women Painting at MDC

May 18 - September 29, 2017

Summer Open Hours: Wednesday & Saturday, 11am-5pm

Curated by Michelle Weinberg and Sarah Michelle Rupert

Girls’ Club presents Women Painting, featuring over 50 works from the collection of Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz.

Inspired by Emile de Antonio’s era-defining 1972 documentary film “Painters Painting”, Women Painting is an exhibit, video documentary series and catalog that attest to the vibrancy and relevance of the practice of painting by women, from the 1970s to the present day.

As contemporary art evolves along the lines of greater interactivity via the use of technology (interdisciplinary forms, new media, performance and spectacle, social action, video, online and virtual reality) Girls’ Club focuses on the practice of painting, a technology with a long, more nuanced history. Focusing on the rich, momentous space between the artist and her painting support, the action occurs within the private space of the artists’ studio and the “arena” of the painting.

In conjunction with the exhibit, Girls' Club will produce a series of mini documentary videos exploring the artists' practice, pursuits and creative drives while illuminating the public on the particular experiences of women, painting, as well as a published catalog.

The exhibition on view at the Miami Dade College Kendall Gallery, in partnership with the Miami Dade College Galleries of Art + Design, in Miami, FL. For additional information about MDC galleries,  please call 305-237-7700.
