7 Dunham and HEYADELE are pleased to present sal·lies, a group exhibition featuring the work of seven female artists engaged in creative exploration and discovery.
Each artist presents a work that in some way proposes an artistic venture or excursion. In doing so, these artists connect landscape to inscape, a mapping of territory to a mapping of self.
The works in this exhibition represent diverse approaches to psychogeography including: artifacts from an expedition to every Summit in the five boroughs, an archaeological find from Bedstuy, the Iron Maiden Artist Tours Office, and Beò: a nomadic structure that will be occupied by performers Betsy Davis and Rez for the opening night and during the New Moon Ceremony on February 10.
This meeting of sculptors, performers, multimedia and conceptual artists presents a feminine approach to the subject outside of the context of feminisms, instead using the model of the Society of Women Geographers. In the same way this all-female geographic society brings together women who are passionate about learning, exploration and adventure, sal·lies is an assembly of female artists whose work exemplifies creative exploration and acute awareness of internal and external landscapes.
Participating artists: Betsy Davis, Simone Frazier, Katarina Jerinic, Naomi Miller, Teresa Pereira, Rez, and Merrill Stephens Cox
sal·lies will be on display from February 8 until February 20 with an opening reception on Friday, February 8 from 7-11 pm at 7 Dunham Place in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The New Moon Ceremony will be held Sunday, February 10 from 5-8 pm. Gallery hours are weekends from 1-6 pm and weekdays by appointment.
