OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday 3/16, 6 - 10 PM

The Art Vacancy (TAV) is pleased to present Origins, its first all-women group exhibition, curated by Sáng Huynh.

In honor of Women’s History Month, Origins is a multidisciplinary show exploring what it means to be a woman. Presenting the work of seven women artists, the visual language with which each artist communicates has been shaped by her lived experiences and layered identities. TAV invites viewers to celebrate the diversity of their artistry, as well as the ways they embrace the multidimensionality of their own womanhood. Participating artists are Christina Lucia Giuffrida, Lizzy Lunday, Ohmiamore, Christa Pratt, Elizabeth Wirija, Natasha Wright, and Alina Zamanova.

About the Exhibition

Too frequently and for too long society has been hearing answers, not derived from authentic experience, but rather through distilled perception. These narratives that have told our lives have warped the lens with which we see ourselves. Our experiences are as broad as they are nuanced. It’s these nuances that disrupt the pattern social constructs have delegated. By sharing these experiences, by telling our stories, we believe it will debase the paradigm of what it means to be a woman, and purify our ability to see ourselves.
