I have to blog about this before too much time passes. Last Wednesday night, about the only night I would have been able to attend, the screening of !WAR (Women's Art Revolution) was shown at the auditorium of the Salem Fine Arts Center.
I have been waiting on pins and needles to have the opportunity for it to come to Winston Salem and so pleased Salem College and their Arts Department provided such an opportunity.
I am greatly indebted to Kim Varnadoe, Visual Arts Department Chair and gallery curator.
The film was shown in conjunction with their current show, the "F" Word: Feminism. I would have liked to have been part of this exhibit, but I would have had to edit these pieces out of my solo exhibition coming up there in February/March. So I opted out of extracting, to be able to display my entire archive.
So excited though, that all of these pieces are coming together! Serendipity lives!
This archive I think could go on forever, and I am committed to keep on, as long as it takes. These first fifty, may just be the tip, I was writing so fast during the film of all the new names. Starting on Ana Mendieta today in honor of !WAR. I think she may also cultivate as a meta-narrative painting. ...Thinking on it.
