"Bigger, Bolder, Better" opens in Brooklyn
30 may 2017 by Irina Turcan
Inspired by the Women's March last January where women gathered in record numbers, the strength in numbers motto is a subtle premise behind “BIGGER, BOLDER, BETTER”. The three curators bring together fifteen women artists whose works utilise fragmentation, repetition, distinct use of daily ephemeral materials, and labour intensive processes.
Lorrie Fredette, Dana Kane, Niki Ledrer, Susan Luss, Ellie Murphy, Mia Pearlman, Jaanika Peerna, Elizabeth Riley, Alyse Rosner, Carol Salmanson, Suzan Shutan, Jen Wrobalewski, Jaynie Crimmins, Christina Massey, and Etty Yaniv create site specific installations which activate 470 Vanderbilt’s large storefront space with unexpected interventions, overall manifesting support and strength.
The evocative location at a bustling rapidly changing intersection in New York City, along with the accumulative interventions in the space, create a show that in itself forms a site where these women gather to actualise their work individually and that altogether gets bigger, bolder and better.
Curators Jaynie Crimmins, Etty Yaniv and Christina Massey have a history of creating exhibitions that revolve around and support female artists. In collaborating together their own shared connection in aesthetic, quality, depth and meaning they brought together this exhibition in just two weeks’ time. In what is essentially a 7000 sq/ft pop-up space provided by the non-profit Chashama, this exhibition is a unique opportunity to showcase and highlight some of New York’s most exciting female artists.
470 Vanderbilt Ave, Brooklyn, New York 11238.
