Women in Art Today
Introduction:
Everyday Resistance in the Art Space

by Jeffreen M. Hayes

While some are currently looking to these artists for their responses, their work, for the most part, ... (read more)

Cooper Johnson reviews Rodrigo Valenzuela’s General Song in Artillery 5.2.18

RODRIGO VALENZUELA
Klowden Mann
by Cooper Johnson
Named after Pablo Neruda’s epic poem on the history of the Americas, Rodrigo Valenzuela’s own “General Song” harmonizes with its Lantinx perspective; his two series of photographs, “Barricades” and “Masks,” confront social issues like immigration and revolt while meditating on the medium of photography.
The primer-white and paint-chipped scenes of “Barricades” exist in simultaneous construction and dismantling, both in material and in concept. The foreground objects of “Barricades” build off, and extend into, a large ... (read more)

Jody Zellen Reviews Megan Cotts’ Proprius in Artscene 4.24.18

Megan Cotts’ sculptural paintings are made by stretching linen over wood in an exhibition titled “Proprius.” They are conceived as three-dimensional armatures that are then painted solid colors with pigments made from tempera and ground glass. Cotts’ imposes an architectural allusion in what read as building details and decoration. Yet rather than represent a whole, she presents each piece as an isolated fragment that is either monochromatic or black and white. The individual pieces have a modular quality that allows for them to be ... (read more)
