Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE), Feb 28th - April 8th, 2007
curated by A.L. Steiner, Eve Fowler, and Emily Roysdon
Shared Women is an exhibition that is dependent on cronyism, feminism and nepotism. We are supposed to be doing it for the love of the craft, for the love of humankind, for the love of the planet but we are not. We sleep with each other, inspire, plot, plan, respond, complain, collaborate, and analyze. We reorganize and reaffirm our histories every few years, culling histories from 'the women' and 'the gays,' from outsiders now insiders. This is a gay feminist show that picks up the tools of our mothers and refashions them to seduce and influence each other. Maybe some artists in this show have slept their way to the middle. Maybe some are using that bridge called my back, but all are creating conscientious contemporary feminist art that needs to be seen by more than the "communities" that form around alternative venues, ideologies, and shared women. Welcome to our dirty commerce.
