Twisted Sisters is an exhibition of works that are made by women artists and depict women as the subjects. Inspired by 1960’s performance works wherein women turned to the body as the site of creation and content, the exhibition casts the body as protagonist. Twisting cultural endorsements of beauty, the depictions of women in these works are unsettling, unexpected, or up side down. Whether the works are driven by narrative, fantasy, or portraiture, they incite an attraction, repulsion or amusement response from the viewer. The nuance of body and form expressed within and between works refuse singularity. Identity is not definitive. The combination of pieces, including painting, sculpture, video, installation, prints, mixed media, and performance, will itself be unsettling, providing few relief points between eyes looking out.
