Even while some arts institutions around the world are cautiously choosing to reopen their doors with new social distancing measures in place, a large part of the art world remains confined to their respective virtual platforms. But, as they say, the show must go on. To that end, the womxn-focused artist directory All She Makes decided to move forward with the launch of a sculpture and installation exhibition curated by Christina Massey of the WoArt Blog at the beginning of June. ‘Changing a Point of View’ brings together the work of 30 artists with the aim to not only highlight the diverse array of talent of the exhibitors, but also to push the boundaries of how viewers can experience art online. Does the show achieve the latter? You’ll have to make sure to view ‘Changing a Point of View’ on the All She Makes website in order to judge for yourself!
Here are Alicia Puig’s picks of four ‘can’t miss’ works in the exhibition:
Kelly Campanella “You layered your goodbyes”
Kelly Campanella has spent over a decade living and creating art in San Francisco, Oakland & Los Angeles. She received a BFA in Drawing & Painting and an MFA in Studio Art. Using her environment as inspiration, Campanella constructs and maps out fictional spaces based on her own memories.
Holly Wong “Mind/Forest II”
Holly Wong is an artist who lives and works in San Francisco, California. She was educated at the San Francisco Art Institute where she graduated with a Master of Fine Arts with a concentration in New Genres. Holly creates installations, assemblages and works on paper, integrating non-traditional approaches with more traditional sewing techniques associated with the history of women. Her approach is both non-conventional but also deeply rooted in her history and culture.
Ann Carrington “Le Pom Pom”
British artist Ann Carrington has exhibited worldwide and fulfilled many private and public commissions. She studied at Bourneville College of Art, Birmingham and the Royal College of Art graduating in 1987. Major accomplishments include a large retrospective in 2015 held at the Royal College of Art. The centerpiece of that exhibition, Devil’s Trumpet, was acquired by the V & A and remains on permanent display in the museum’s Silver Galleries.
Samuelle Green “The Paper Caves”
Samuelle Green was raised in rural Pennsylvania and attended Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia and Parsons School of Design in New York. After graduation she continued to live and work in Brooklyn, NY for 18 years before renovating an 1800's building into a studio and art space in her hometown in Pennsylvania where she continues to develop her work.
