A Bomb, With Ribbon Around It—Love this provocative, oxymoron of a title inspired by surrealist André Breton’s famous remark upon encountering Frida Kahlo’s art. SAWCC‘s line up of artists sounds wonderful—if you’re in New York, do make time to check it out. Opens December 14th, runs till January 18th. Queens Musuem, New York.
From the press release and website:
The exhibition presents works by South Asian women that metaphorically depict the self in personal, social, or cultural guises that will be as attractive, unassuming, and pristine as a beautiful ribbon; yet untying that ribbon triggers an explosion of diverse themes, such as globalization, immigration, gender equality, identity, politics, and religion. Featuring 18 South Asian women artists, exhibited artworks include painting, work-on-paper, sculpture, installation, photography, video, and performance.
