Description

Mirus Gallery is pleased to announce the second annual Through the Looking Glass: Refraction through the Female Gaze, a group exhibition featuring female artists from all over the world: Evie Cahir, Stefania Fersini, Vicki Ling, Veronique Meignaud, Alicia Reyes McNamara, Jennier Nehrbass, Annalisa Sher, Mandy Tsung, Helice Wen, and Janelle Wesehart.

Through the Looking Glass is back by popular demand. In 2013 Mirus Gallery unveiled the first exhibition The Looking Glass. It was so well received that it created a precedence forcing Mirus to continue the dialog in 2014, launching the first of Mirusí annual exhibitions. This exhibition examines contemporary representations of the female form. Through the Looking Glass reinterprets the presentation of womenís bodies through a variety of mediums and practices unified by subject matter and a solely female perspective.

The artists featured in the Through the Looking Glass challenge the preconceived notion that the female form in art represents a sense of delicacy and untouchable beauty. Creating a new discourse and exploring the woman's role in artistic context, Through the Looking Glass is a celebration of the female form that ultimately transcends objectification through the artistís examination or association with their subjects. Rather than using the female body as an agenda to reinforce societal norms or assert dominance, the artists are able to identify with and explore the spectrum of their subjectís humanity, often as an exercise in self-examination and exploration. The works of art featured in this show are a contemporary examination of the psychology of art practice and explore alternative realms in which the female body is represented.
