A RADICAL VOICE: 23 Women features works by a selection of women artists whose practices have helped shape and transform the language of contemporary art. Linked by their unique vision, convictions, and constancy, these twenty-three artists have ferociously defied the status quo within a creative spectrum that ranges from the sublime to the utilitarian, from expressionism to precision, and from humor to drama. Sustaining a life as an artist is, at its core, a radical act. The women assembled here possess the special and endless curiosity required to propel one through the unordinary life of an artist.
Artists include Olive Ayhens, Amanda Church, Martha Clippinger, Connie Fox, Regina Gilligan, Tamara Gonzales, Jacqueline Gourevitch, Lisa Hein, Priscilla Heine, Hilary Helfant, Elana Herzog, Alice Hope, Laurie Lambrecht, Judith Linhares, Erika Ranee, Judy Richardson, Bonnie Rychlak, Toni Ross, Drew Shiflett, Jeanne Silverthorne, Zina Saro-Wiwa, Jude Tallichet, and Almond Zigmund.
