Description

 

Behind the Velvet Curtain: Seven Women Artists From the Czech Republic

April 3-May 18 (on exhibit), April 2, 6-8 pm (reception)

Featuring Czech Women Artists: Milena Dopitová, Erika Bornová, Katerina Vincourová, Lenka Klodová, Michaela Thelenová, Zdena Kolecková, Alena Kotzmannová

Behind the Velvet Curtain presents women artists who entered the Czech and international art scene in the last 15 years (all of them were born in the 1960s and 70s). The exhibition takes viewers into the marginalized zones of the former communist society where there is no place for addressing, without prejudice, female desire, sexuality, identity, maternity, or age. The exhibition is neither explicitly feminist, nor explicitly political but has, nevertheless, a strong social dimension. It aims-metaphorically-to undraw the velvet curtain and disclose complex relationships between men and women, "we" ("I") and "they" ("other"), inside and outside, center and periphery.
