About the event

Artist: Lucienne Fontannaz

What is shared by the mythological, historic, and contemporary women: Medusa, Eve, Joan of Arc and Kurdish Women Fighters? They were all powerful females, dispossessed of their powers. The list is long of women who endured mistrust and betrayal, leading to violence against them, even murder. And their fall from grace, their diminished status, has shaped our consciousness and expectations of womanhood ever since.

Lucienne Fontannaz’s ambitious painting project explores via the illuminations of art, the life and times of 13 archetype women. Through the alluring use of gold, an affirmative reinterpretation is brought to light, restoring the dignity and authority of such exemplary women, enabling them to be symbolically and practically inspirational today.

Please note: This opening will coincide with the opening of Uneven Terrain: Surveying the landscape exhibition.
