Change Agents: Six South Florida Artists Making Things Happen
Curated by Michelle Weinberg and Sarah Michelle Rupert
Girls' Club presents Change Agents, an exhibition of works by female artists in South Florida, whose careers and creative projects advance the global conversation about contemporary art, demonstrate dynamic ways in which artists can be self-sustaining, while nurturing the career advancement of others. Change Agents will share new models for contemporary art practice through site-specific installation and a one-day practicum open to all creatives.
Artists Leah Brown, Rosemarie Chiarlone, Naomi Fisher, Jillian Mayer, Lisa Rockford and Frances Trombly expand the scope of contemporary artistic practice, working beyond the confines of the studio to improve understanding and representation of contemporary art in the region. Each of these artists is represented in the Girls' Club Collection, the private collection of Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz, a collection of over 800 works by majority female contemporary artists.
The exhibition is accompanied by a catalog and a day-long program of talks and workshops for the public. Details below.
