Reception for BWP/AiRX: Susan R. Kirshenbaum
Saturday, April 13, 3–5PM
Black & White Projects, 2830 20th St, SF
Hosted twice a year, BWP’s Live Residency offers the opportunity for artists to create new work within the gallery during open hours. The residency’s goal is to create a space for artists to complete works that go beyond their past scale or scope, and to provide the public with a venue to interact with the artist, ask questions, and see the process of making. Each residency concludes in a solo exhibition that includes work created during their time in the space.
“Barbie on the Cusp” is my multi-media project underway at my Art Residency with Black & White Projects.
SFWA ART TALK, FEB 23, 2019, My “Manifesto”: “WOMEN IN SILK: NOT WHAT YOU THINK” & “LIFE SQUARED”
What drives me to create this work? When I was younger, I thought the world was progressive, moving forward, never backward. Now I’m both astonished and delighted that at long last there is another wave of increased awareness about the ongoing exclusion and mistreatment of women. As a young person growing up in the 60s through the 80s I watched and participated in a wave of progress in human rights.
Not knowing better, I believed that political and social change are continuous and progressive. I thought with the women’s movement that our progress was leaping ahead and my generation would at last achieve equality - that the world would not judge us by our bodies and treat us like second-class citizens. I was wrong. Now I know this is not so. But I see now that the old cliché one step forward two steps back is apt for much of life and obvious in our political climate. This is why resilience is so important. The fight is still on and there is renewed energy. I continue to play my part through my art.
