The Untitled Magazine is pleased to present: “The ‘F’ Word: Feminism in Art” A group show of 20 female contemporary artists at The Untitled Space in New York City from October 20 – 28th, 2015. Curated by gallery director Indira Cesarine and Denise Krimershmoys of Vohn Gallery, the exhibit features a wide array of mediums, including painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, and embroidery. Each artist individually addresses concepts revolving around feminism with works that either challenge gender stereotypes or embrace female empowerment, with literal or metaphorical visual language.

The opening will feature a special performance by Legacy Fatale, an interdisciplinary performance art collective born in New York under the direction of artist Coco Dolle and co-leader Shawn Bishop. Its concept is based on recent archeological discoveries of the ancient nomadic Amazons, warrior women. Incorporating original music composition and costumes, Legacy Fatales performances are evocative of tribal and pagan rituals, ceremonial processions and interpretative dances.  Legacy Fatale represents a hybrid breed of mythical and contemporary female archetypes, honoring a global buried matriarchal lineage. The collective has previously performed at numerous art fairs and venues including Miami Art Basel, Select Art Fair, Fountain Art Fair, Sensei Gallery, and Lincoln Center.

The exhibition “The ‘F’ Word: Feminism in Art” was curated in celebration of The #GirlPower Issue of The Untitled Magazine, and is part of the publication’s “Women in Art” series, which features a wide range of contemporary female artists in a series of solo exhibitions and group shows at The Untitled Space on an ongoing basis.
