LaCa Projects presents Convergence and Crash
The artistic creations of women throughout history have often been documented through that of muse, lover, or art subject at best—a phenomenon that continues in present-day and permeates women’s placement in the market as serious and relevant creatives, credible in their own right. Presenting eight regional, national, and international artists, Convergence & Crash challenges historical references and assumptions, and bears new perspectives on women’s role in art creation and how this identification may or may not impact what is created. This exhibition offers paintings, works on paper, and fabric weavings in response to the role of women as artists; as storytellers; and as active participants in cultural dialogue, exploring the meaning of identifying as a woman artist in contemporary society.
