A solo exhibition by Jacqueline Westling.
North America represented a place free from European traditions for women Surrealists from the United States and Mexico, and European émigrés. While their male counterparts usually cast women as objects for their delectation, female Surrealists delved into their own subconscious and dreams, creating extraordinary visual images. Their art was primarily about identity: portraits, double portraits, self-referential images, and masquerades that demonstrate their trials and pleasures. The exhibition includes works in a variety of media dating from 1931 to 1968, and some later examples that demonstrate Surrealism's influence on the feminist movement. Iconic figures such as Louise Bourgeois, Leonora Carrington, Frida Kahlo, Lee Miller, Kay Sage, Dorothea Tanning, and Remedios Varo are represented, along with lesser known or newly discovered practitioners.
Join Catalyst for a field trip to view the Museum of Contemporary Art's exhibition Lynda Benglis, an exhibition of the work of American artist Lynda Benglis from the past forty years.
Catalyst Gallery has its doors open for all those who would like to show their work. It is a FREE FOR ALL show, which means it is completely non-juried and anything that is brought, is shown. A salon style show, there will be antique furniture and glassware for decoration that is also for sale. This show is meant to highlight Catalyst's connection with the undergraduate student body at UCI, and is a celebration of all forms of art from our campus.
