Female Lenses For Art Activism: MIA ART COLLECTION X MTART AGENCY
While the range of themes of “Female Lenses for Art Activism” reaches far and wide, the artists intersect in their multi-layered and multi-faceted artistic practice. The artists on show deal with pressing issues and offer a female lens with which to view these. Consciousness, ancestry, sustainability, mental health, technology, and energies are some of the topics the artists tackle. But while their topics hardly intersect, their savvy artistic skill does. All these women show their work in unique multi-disciplinary ways that combine and remix forms to create work that demands to be seen. The urgency of their work urges us to see these artists as activists, for they are both pushing forth their female lenses with pride while also tackling pressing issues we must acknowledge and observe in our contemporary society.
Artists: Delphine Diallo, Andrea Tyrimos, Lauren Baker, Claire Luxton, Elisa Insua, Sian Fan, Sadie Clayton
