BUFFALO, NY.- Drawn largely from the Collection of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, One Another: Spiderlike, I Spin Mirrors presents an extremely personal dialogue visible in the work of renowned women artists that draws the viewer into conversations about and explorations of beauty and imperfection, the reclamation of the female form, power plays against social norms, transformation, and motherhood.

Organized by Curator for the Collection Holly E. Hughes and taking its title from a photograph by artist Janine Antoni and a poem, “Childless Woman,” by Sylvia Plath, the exhibition features works by Antoni, Louise Bourgeois, Jeanne Dunning, Eva Hesse, Wendy Jacob, Ana Mendieta, Cathy de Monchaux, Alison Saar, Laurie Simmons, Kiki Smith, Valeska Soares, Erika Wanenmacher, and Hannah Wilke that together serve as a strong visual meditation on women, beauty, decay, and the restorative qualities of art. The artists assembled in One Another are ever mindful of the social roles they inhabit as both women and artists, and their works provide moments for reflection upon our own relationships and humanity, offering thoughtful insights on provocative questions.

Speaking about the exhibition, Hughes said, “I am very interested in how art enables artists to better understand, and express, feelings about their own interpersonal relationships, the themes of which are often universal, particularly in the female experience. I hope that visitors will reflect on these themes, and how their meaning might intersect with one’s own unique experience.”

One Another features work in a variety of media—drawing, sculpture, painting, photography, and performance. In these works, the figure is often a vehicle for exploring themes of empowerment, memory, self-preservation, sexuality, and transformation.
