NO TODO ES FRAGILIDAD

Video-performances de artistas mujeres

Curador: Silvio De Gracia


No todo es fragilidad [Not everything is fragile], introduces a serie of video-performances where women artists try to explore poetic dimension of the body and the female nature. Through the experimentation in different approaches to performance art, these videos reveal the psychological and physical energy of women, not excluding the beauty, breaking the old conventional image of female as a fragile being.  Most of the videos show a female body incarnated in intense and obsessive actions, including hard efforts, allegories of resistance against the absurd or confrontations with the physical and social limitations.

Nuit Blanche:
February 27, 2016    20:00pm -21:30pm at Place Bonaventure

“The Yellow Umbrella—An Unfinished Conversation” is a performance that involves twelve performers engaging with yellow umbrellas. The umbrella is a symbol of protection and resistance. This performance seeks an intersection where aesthetics and politics ignite each other, exploring how symbolic and situational behaviors impact on our perception in regards to specific social movements and activism. It is relevant to open conversations about how to transform social and political landscapes through embodied gestures, examining relationships between the citizens and the place they live, between what they have lost and what they have gained in social political transformations.

participant performers: Liliana Argumedo, Catherine Laframboise Desjardins, Kelsey Duffy, Alida Esmail, Lucy Fandel, Maggy Flynn, Brittney Canda Gering, Maggie O’Neil, Kim L Rouchdy, Natalie Schneck, Eryn Tempest, and Emilie van der Waals

Group Exhibition – La Corteza del Alma – at Fernando Pradilla Gallery, Madrid, Spain

Exhibition: February 18- March 26, 2016
Opening reception:   February 18, 2016
Curated by Dr. Beth Moysés

La Corteza del Alma es una metáfora para referirnos a las capas del cuerpo, la casa de los sentimientos físicos y espirituales. Sus protagonistas son diez mujeres de distintas nacionalidades y generaciones, cuyas las obras están relacionadas con las multiplicidades de lo femenino, a través de diferentes temas, que abarcan las injusticias sociales, las cuestiones de género, violencia física, psicológica, discriminaciones raciales, o sexualidad.El punto de partida de estas obras es el cuerpo femenino, referente común para mujeres artistas, desde hace ya muchas décadas. Los soportes y técnicas utilizadas (instalaciones, pintura, dibujos, fotografías, video y audio), nos lleva a recordar la frase escrita en una de las obras de Barbara Kruger, l989: Your Body is a Battleground.La obra a la que nos referimos fue creada hace casi 20 años, nuestra sociedad ha cambiando, y las mujeres han conseguido algunas victorias, no si luchar por ellas. Todavía hay mucho por hacer, aunque las mujeres van consiguiendo imponerse. ¡Tanto en el arte como en la vida!

La Corteza del Alma revisa y actualiza esta premisa desde de un enfoque plural, poético y político con las obras de Yolanda Domínguez (EP) Catherine Dong (CN) Regina Galindo (GT) Beth Moysés (BR) Marina Núñez (EP) Rosana Paulino (BR) Marta María Pérez (CU) Teresa Serrano (MX ) Mimi Smith (USA) Sue Williams (UK)
