The Mary H. Dana Women Artists Series, a program of the Center for Women in the Arts and Humanities (CWAH) in partnership with Rutgers University Libraries, announces a group exhibition in honor of The Feminist Art Project’s 10th Anniversary entitled TFAP@TEN. Established at Rutgers University in 2006, The Feminist Art Project (TFAP) is an international collaborative initiative advancing the aesthetic and intellectual contributions of women in the visual arts. Boasting a searchable calendar of over 3,000 feminist art exhibitions, conferences, artist talks and lectures, publications and much more, TFAP has become a hub for educational resources and information on feminist art in the U.S. and internationally. TFAP has 55 regional coordinators throughout the world who facilitate networking and regional program development. The TFAP@CAA Day of Panels has become a highlight at the College Art Association (CAA) annual conferences. Visit feministartproject.rutgers.edu to find out more about the calendar, events, regional groups, and educational resources.
TFAP@TEN features the works of 6 artists in the TFAP Regional New Jersey Chapter. Collectively these artists’ works intertwine visceral aspects of the natural world and the human condition, while having a strong focus on formal practice and narratives. Jaz Graf‘s drawings and So Yoon Lym‘s works on paper focus on patterns and textures inspired by animals, organic materials, and the human body. Found and used materials infiltrate the sculptural works of both Adrienne Wheeler and Babs Reingold. Anonda Bell‘s site-specific installations and Nancy Cohen‘s mixed media works encompass space with figurative and organic forms that are both eerie and comforting. To accompany the exhibition, CWAH will publish a comprehensive free online catalog with essay by Midori Yoshimoto, Associate Professor of Art History and Director of the Visual Arts Gallery at New Jersey City University.
The exhibition will be on view from January 19 – April 8, 2016, in the Mary H. Dana Women Artists Series Galleries at the Mabel Smith Douglass Library, Rutgers University. On Thursday, March 3rd at the Douglass Library, there will be an artists’ discussion moderated by Midori Yoshimoto starting at 5pm with a TFAP 10th Anniversary Celebration to follow at 6pm. The exhibition and event are free and open to public. Please RSVP for the event to: email@example.com. Further information about the exhibition, event, and parking can be found at cwah.rutgers.edu.
