Opening Reception: Friday, October 5, 2018, 6:00 – 8:00 pm

In Poorly Watched Girls, visual artist Suzanne Bocanegra explores the ways that our popular entertainments theatricalize women in trouble—spiritual trouble, emotional trouble, and romantic trouble. Inspired by an opera, a film, and a ballet, Bocanegra, whose work involves large-scale installation and performance, draws on the breadth of her practice to create a multidisciplinary contemporary art experience. Blending elements from performing and visual arts—textile, collage, performance, staging, video, and original music—she blurs the boundary between the black box of the theater and the white box of the museum. The exhibition, Bocanegra’s largest to date, is the culmination of her collaboration with The Fabric Workshop and Museum.
