Join us Thursday, January 9th from 6–8pm for the opening reception of our new exhibition “Visibilities: Intrepid Women of Artpace”.
So much of (art) history is from the perspective of the west or from the male perspective. This event celebrates the opening of an exhibition kicking off Artpace’s 25th anniversary which looks to gender parity and inclusivity. Linda Pace was an artist philanthropist, and the founder of Artpace, and the exhibition seeks to highlight Artpace’s role in making visible and amplifying global voices of a bold and powerful female-identifying artistic community. As Linda once said, “As an artist, I realized artists must work in environments in which they can be understood and respected. Later, as a patron, I tried to put this lesson into practice, creating a climate that encouraged individual experimentation in the way I had experienced it in that course.”
The project focuses keenly on presenting a diverse grouping of work addressing issues of identity, femininity, gender, feminism, and womanhood (in whatever form that may take) in an age when Linda Nochlin’s seminal 1971 essay “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?” still resonates.
Free beer provided by our good friends at Künstler Brewing and Artpace offers free parking at 513 N Flores.
Artpace is always free and open to the public.
