Turner Carroll Gallery Presents:

Can’t Lock Me Up: Women Resist Silence

March 29-April 22, 2019

Opening Reception, Friday, March 29, 5-7pm 

Can’t Lock Me Up: Women Resist Silence showcases work by artists who refuse to remain silent about the ways women, globally, have been enslaved mentally, metaphorically, and physically. Turner Carroll Gallery is proud to exhibit women artists from throughout the world who speak the truth for themselves and for their sisters who might have a hard time finding their voice. This exhibition includes Iranian artist Fatemeh Baigmoradi, whose photographs with controversial members burned out of them help us remember a tragic history. Chinese-born artist Hung Liu has dedicated her life to painting disenfranchised women as quasi-imperial, transforming their pain into beauty by telling their stories with a grace they did not experience in their lifetimes. Lien Truong is a Vietnamese artist who uses traditionally feminine media such as painted silk, 24-karat gold thread, and embroidery to tackle international issues of domination and resistance in her paintings. Judy Chicago and Jenny Holzer both had to be loud and brash with their words and images when they started expressing these sentiments even before feminist art was defined. Ambreen Butt's works repeat the names of drone victims incessantly. Sheri Crider creates art that expresses personal transformation of incarcerated women, and Monica Lundy’s paintings tell the stories of women forced into mental institutions for being “disobedient,” “promiscuous,” or “defiant.”
