THE CLUB: “All the Women. In Me. Are Tired”
For the second “Opus” exhibition: “All the Women. In Me. Are Tired,” THE CLUB invites New York-based independent curator Jasmine Wahi, who has curated several works by international female artists.
The exhibition introduces eight artists from different generations, including the well-respected Marilyn Minter, an American visual artist whose video work “My County ‘Tis of Thee’” premiered at Simon Lee Gallery in London last June, and Hiba Schahbaz, a young Pakistani artist whose work has attracted wide range of media and The Dean Collection (founded by Alicia Keys and her husband Swizz Beatz).
Both in their 30s, Wahi and THE CLUB director Yukako Yamashita, having Indian and Japanese cultural roots respectively, started their art world careers in similar ways. Through the Western art world, the two sympathize through their mutual questioning of the stereotyping of sexuality and skin color in contemporary society, which has resulted in their collaboration for this show. Through the work of its eight female artists, this exhibition explores strategies and concrete examples of how women today can live their lives freely.
Opening reception: Saturday, January 25 from 18:00
