Exhibition at Leslie Sacks Fine Art in Los Angeles focuses on women's art now
Ekstrom-Hansen, Wolf Dancer(detail) 2012, bronze.


LOS ANGELES, CA.- Women's Art Now shines a vivid light on what’s long been missing from the socio-cultural and socio-political equations at work in much of the world today: that missing factor being equal input from women. Thus all the works in this exhibition, though not necessarily about women, are by women.

The only other criteria for the selection of artworks is that they be masterfully executed, authentic expressions of the artists’ identities and consequent points of view. The field from which the artists were selected was defined in an equally simple manner - the artists have either crossed paths with the gallery and/or the gallery has collected their work.

Having cast this modest curatorial net absent of an aesthetic agenda other than artistry and authenticity, this show nevertheless exhibits a broad cross-section from the canons of modernism, post-modernism, feminism and post-feminism. Styles range from literal to abstract, geometric to expressionist; media range from traditional painting, graphics and sculpture to conceptual and other “avant-garde” forms.

WOMEN’S ART NOW benefits Women’s Voices Now, a not-for-profit organization concerned with advancing women’s rights to free expression in Muslim societies. The Women’s Voices Now website hosts the largest existing collection of films by women and about women living in Muslim societies: 98 films from 40 countries. The website also supports an interactive online community of contributors from a wide range of national, ethnic, religious and economic backgrounds. All gallery proceeds from this exhibition will be donated to Women’s Voices Now.
