November 10, 2013 - September 27, 2014
Curated by TM Sisters
Girls’ Club engages Miami artist team TM Sisters —sisters Monica and Natasha Lopez de Victoria—to collaborate with the collection of contemporary art by women amassed by Fort Lauderdale collectors Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz, for the this exhibition.
After viewing works in the collection, the TM Sisters, who themselves create works in a range of media, have selected works which spoke to the mysterious attraction the girls felt to each piece.
Works in all media have been chosen for their vivid metaphysics: transforming figures, metamorphosis, supernatural mysteries, telepathic communication, explosions of psychic power. Some works depict visible protagonists. In others, the viewer is the subject, witnessing the magic internally.
Works by internationally renowned artists Barbara Kruger, Jenny Holzer, Ana Mendieta, and current practitioners on the world stage such as Tracey Emin, Lorna Simpson and Catherine Opieare included. South Florida artists include Harumi Abe, Autumn Casey, AdrienneRose Gionta, Tara Penick, Dinorah de Jesus Rodriguez, and Samantha Salzinger and Michelle Weinberg.
