Maccarone Presents "Coming to Power: 25 Years Of Sexually X-Plicit Art By Women"

Sep 09 2016 - Oct 16 2016


630 Greenwich Street
New York, NY

Maccarone Gallery, with Pati Hertling and Julie Tolentino, restage the landmark feminist exhibition COMING TO POWER: 25 Years Of Sexually X-Plicit Art By Women, curated by Ellen Cantor in 1993 at David Zwirner Gallery. Returning to and experiencing this work is a confrontation. It forces us all to face the impact of both the potency of this righteous canon as well as experience its absences, losses, hits, and misses. We look towards this exhibition – its shadow, as well as its future – as a language constructed from both past and future bodies ― bodies of work re-rendered, and bodies simultaneously recognized. We hope to underscore that a “survey of women” is a rigorous transit into the archives’ crevices, spatial discourse, sordid gossip, and recollections.

Artists include Barbara Hammer, luciana achugar, Peggy Ahwesh, Zoe Leonard, Lorraine O'Grady and Narcissister.
