May 28, 2023 - July 31, 2023
Girls’ Club Collection presents Reconstructing Realities, a new exhibition of works that weave together segmented and fragmented realities from the female realm. Pulled from the private collection of Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz, works include photography, collage, mixed media and beyond. The exhibit is collaboratively curated by artist Marina Font, gallerist Dina Mitrani and Girls’ Club Director of Collections Sarah Michelle Rupert.
Inspired by recently acquired work from Miami-based artist Marina Font, the exhibit dives into the layered experiences of personal and domestic life through a gendered lens. In her recent series Shifted Narratives, Marina playfully explores found vintage home photo albums, and the numerous possibilities of un-kept recollections and unfinished stories in which those absent memories become abstractions.
Those endless possibilities is what drives Reconstructing Realities: the works build from a diverse range of perspectives, yet each artwork is yearning to retell their story and construct a new reality.
Artists include Ida Applebroog, Sophie Calle, Lee Edwards, Delphine Diallo, Stella Johnson, Sarah Jones, Klara Kristalova, Marina Font, Adriana Lozano, Wangechi Mutu, Peggy Levison Nolan, Onajide Shabaka, Simone Shubuck, Lorna Simpson, Jo Ann Walters, and Paula Wilson
