MATERIAL GIRLS

Feb 4 - Apr 21, 2017
Curated by Blair Fornwald, Jennifer Matotek, and Wendy Peart

Organized and circulated by Dunlop Art Gallery

Material Girls is about women taking up space. This large-scale group exhibition brings together Canadian and international emerging, mid-career, and senior female artists from across artistic disciplines and cultural backgrounds. Uniting these works is an exploration of material process and notions of excess as they relate to the feminized body, gendered space, and capitalist desire. Sumptuous, decorative and visually overwhelming, the exhibition space becomes a horror vacui, a jubilant and visceral counterpoint to the standard conventions of the austere white cube.
