[I]nstagram has presented a new, (somewhat) democratic route into the art world. Galleries, typically owned and operated by the elite, are struggling to keep up with a new wave of visual artists amassing dedicated followings of new age art fans finding their visual fix online. And women are leading the way.
When translated to a gallery space, these artists show their work has scale and an immersive quality not immediately associated with a six-inch screen. But however it is consumed, the work is subversive, original and in high demand. See five of our favourites below.
NYC ~ my photo, CONTROL, is a part of the new group exhibition, ‘ONE YEAR OF RESISTANCE’ which opens tonight at @untitledspaceny in TriBeCa. I’m frustrated with the concept of “Resistance”... what does it mean to “Resist” if the totalitarian hierarchs are FORCING their ideologies & policies upon us? What does it mean to “Resist” when you’re being held down against your will? CONTROL is a response to this paradox of resistance. CONTROL is a disarmament of patriarchal constructs that dictate what we are and are not allowed to do. CONTROL is a swift, blunt reminder that in order to know thy enemy, we must also know thyself. CONTROL is the refusal of submission when faced with adversity. CONTROL is a call to arms. See you tonight at Untitled Space for the opening reception ~ looking forward to having some discussions about these ideas in person with my fellow sisters & Re-sisters ???
