rosenfeld porcini presents its sixth themed exhibition “Lifting the Veil”, the show intends to look beyond the artists’ narratives to examine the formal and poetic interpretations they adopt in their chosen artistic languages.
There has been a visible increase in recent years of all-female contemporary art exhibitions. This attention is primarily a reaction to the perceived gender imbalance in society and more specifically in the art world.
However, the gallery’s decision to bring together these eleven international women artists has another intention.”Lifting the Veil” is not aiming to make a statement about what it is to be a female artist in our contemporary society, but rather looks at a selected group of artists from very different cultures and backgrounds in order to examine if there is a common sensibility that links their practices, even though their narrative concerns vary greatly.
The eleven artists featured in this exhibition all have very distinct voices; yet it is their poetic approaches and the sensibilities they display, which appear to weave a thread unwittingly and unknowingly between them as the veil is lifted and their inner worlds are revealed.
