Art LeadHER, a group show curated by Mashonda Tifrere with work from fifteen contemporary female artists at various stages of their careers, highlighting the contributions and dispositions of working female artists in the modern market.
In the spirit of recent projects examining women in urban contemporary art—shows such as No Man’s Land at Miami’s Rubell Family Collection, and Year of the Woman at Philadelphia’s Artist’s House Gallery—Art LeadHER presents a survey of new and recent work that embody the multitudinous forms of female perspective: softness, struggle and pain, and a near-constant grappling with visible and invisible power structures.
The 25 works on view range in scale, media, and approach, and include figurative and abstract portraiture, sculpture, photography, and street art. Taken together, Art LeadHER is ultimately a celebration of women, providing a platform for acknowledgment and appreciation.
