Sulger - Buel Gallery cordially invites you to attend the opening reception of “The Future Is Female” , displaying a cohort of our best women artists. This group show pays homage to the feminist art movement in capturing the major underrepresentation of women artist sin a ultimately patriarchal contemporary art world. As Fashion Week and International Women’s Day occur in February and March respectively, we seek to bring more visibility to women within art history and art practice.
We are deeply proud and excited to have such an impressive cohort of artists (who happen to be women), all luminaries in their own right creating art in a deeply thoughtful, eco-incentivized, provocatively authentic and artisanal fashion. The commonalities inculcated within each of these egalitarian pieces are themes of integrity, environmental conservation and cultural conservation all captured in explosive narrative. In the great words of Donna Karan “I believe in the power of women. As nurturers, we have the ability to care and share and make the world a better place”.
The nurturing manner in which artists like Ghizlane Sahli present the collateral beauty of recycling and re-use as a means to achieving such resplendent, ethereal, biomorphic organ-like shapes. This further consolidates the validity in the need for women to be involved in conversations that find themselves within the slipstream of international commentary which for long has remained predominantly patriarchal. It is our hope that this group show will capture the importance of women in places of power as integral and not subject to tokenism. The future is indeed female!
