The Woman Made Gallery opened the 17 International Open on March 07 representing about 34 women artists, exhibiting from March 07-April 17, 2014. Opening the day before Woman’s Day on March 07 @ 6-9 PM, Located @ 685 North Milwaukee Ave., Chicago, Illinois 60642 [Map]
My video piece 3 SISTERS: Lost Myth will be screen throughout the exhibition. If you are in the Chicago area please check out the work, and I would love to hear your feedback.
During the opening there was a performance We Are History by Asli Uludag in which she held up her sculptural piece made of steel, cast iron, cement, nickel silver, copper (12 x 40 x 20 inches). She remained in this venerable position for the duration of the exhibit. In timecode 00:17-00:29 min. a man sits in front of her, the dichotomy of Uludag and the viewer activates the tension of the piece in this public setting; note the other guy talking causally about his studio and art practice as this woman remains in this position.
