Exhibition Tour: A Female Landscape and the Abstract Gesture

Gallery Tour at Johnson-Kulukundis Family Gallery

Join us for a tour of A Female Landscape and the Abstract Gesture with interim curator of exhibitions Caitlin Julia Rubin.

Organized by visiting curator Chassidy A. Winestock, A Female Landscape, and the Abstract Gesture brings together works by four artists—Maren Hassinger, Howardena Pindell, Liliana Porter, and Mildred Thompson—who developed innovative abstract languages and vocabularies in the 1960s and 1970s. In times of social rupture, they forged their own way through novel artistic gestures. By nailing, folding, unraveling, piercing, and fastening, these women underscored the labor inherent in their art-making. Their works highlight the body by revealing the actions through which these works were created—or, in Thompson’s words, by making the invisible visible.

Harvard Radcliffe Institute gratefully acknowledges the Johnson-Kulukundis Family Endowment Fund for the Arts, which is supporting this exhibition.
