HOLDING UP HALF THE SKY
Maddox Gallery proudly presents ‘Holding Up Half The Sky,’ a group exhibition that reconsiders identity and personal agency from a female artist’s point of view.
Introducing works by Dawn Okoro, Jessalyn Brooks, and Marina Heintze, the exhibition examines what it means to have meaning and autonomy over the female form. Through figurative portraiture, how do these artists represent themselves and women in the world amidst conventional ideals of body politics, race, sexuality, and gender?
The three artists here reveal our shared contemporary experiences and inspire us to re-consider our beliefs about identity and self-determination. Their works serve as urgent calls for awareness, thoughtful dialogue, and effective action, all in the hopes of a more inclusive society.
