FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA.- Renowned throughout South Florida and the international art scene, the de la Cruz Collection presents “Pink Powder”, on view now through May 15 at the Adolfo and Marisela Cotilla Gallery inside the Alvin Sherman Library at Nova Southeastern University (NSU).

The exhibit, which is free and open to the public, brings together a group of artists whose work addresses the female form with an unapologetic intensity. Imagery varying from the quiet and ponderous to the raw and rebellious subvert the traditional role of the female muse within the canons of art history, literature, and popular culture. Works ranging from painting and photography to neon and fiber-based works express an openness and agency towards action. The viewer is confronted with fantasies of revisionist history, personal or otherwise, which unabashedly expose the romantic, self-indulgent and at times morbid desires of the female subject. Artists in the exhibition: Kaye Donachie, Tracey Emin, Naomi Fisher, Birgit Megerle, Ana Mendieta, and Christoph Ruckhaberle.

“We are delighted that the de la Cruz family has returned to Nova Southeastern University’s Alvin Sherman Library to showcase this exciting exhibit of world-class artists,” said Lydia M. Acosta, M.A., NSU vice president for Information Services and university librarian.

“The de la Cruz Collection is pleased to collaborate with NSU in this innovative program,” said Rosa de la Cruz, founder of the de la Cruz Collection. “These exhibitions serve as the perfect platform to further engage communities beyond the scope of the collections programming and exhibitions. Through this program, we hope to encourage a conversation which raises awareness of contemporary art practices. ”

This is the second in a series of exhibitions curated and organized by the de la Cruz Collection for NSU.
