Spring is finally back and thankfully there has been much to do.
I will be doing a weekly performance at Hunter College's East Harlem Gallery during its presentation of QUEENIE | Female artists selected from El Museo del Barrio's permanent collection. I was honored to have been asked to do a performance near and dear to me called Ave Maria, in dedication to those lives lost in Puerto Rico during and after Hurricane Maria.
I will be at the gallery once a week til mid June doing my performance. Check my instagram @missyfoosy for more info.
Selected artworks by female artists from El Museo del Barrio's Collection
March 21 - June 23, 2018
New artwork commissions by Melissa Calderón, Alessandra Expósito, and Glendalys Medina.
QUEENIE features a selection of artworks by female artists across various media from the Permanent Collection of El Museo del Barrio. The exhibition highlights the institution’s collection with a particular focus on the female artists and QUEENIE takes its title from a sculpture by Alessandra Expósito. The exhibition brings together works which prompt a multifarious dialogue around society and gender through the artists’ varying perspectives and experiences. As part of the exhibition, HEHG has invited three NYC-based artists to respond to the exhibition with a new commission that further explores the connections among the collecting process, societal change, and gendered experience.
One of my favorite images of all the images I have been working on. This is a material sample of what my painted stainless steel sugar cane stalks will look like as well as other images of my updated design.
I am beyond excited for the next steps...
