This fall, Pen + Brush, in collaboration with curator Mashonda Tifrere and ArtleadHER, will debut King Woman, a show that recognizes works of art that are not only by women, but are the embodiment of autonomy, determination, and precision of skill.
The artists featured in this large-scale group exhibition engage the viewer on humanist terms while harnessing the strength implicit in emotions, such as empathy and vulnerability. The mission of King Woman is to aesthetically prove that there is freedom, power and an inner ability to rule each of our own kingdoms as modern day women.
What’s more, this group exhibition will feature the work of 25 visual artists (including performance and video installations) and encompass contemporary women artists ranging from emerging to established creators. It is through this critical pairing of recognized and less well-known women artists that Pen + Brush hopes to showcase the talent, power and breadth of the work that women can create. Artists will be announced in the coming weeks and months.
