LIAR'S COUTURE, my new work, will be included in Disillusionment: Perspectives Beyond. The Disillusionment Project was conceptualized and developed by Robin Holder and Marina Gutierrez. Taller Boricua graciously hosted the exhibition under the coordination of Ronnie Bellini. A video of engaging interviews with 20 of the artists is currently in production.
Holder and Gutierrez curated 24 accomplished women artists who were invited to create works about Disillusionment, whether personal, cultural, political or global. The artworks they created range from "Me Too" narratives and hurricane reflections to historical texts using media that include welded woven steel, found assemblage, paper collage, sewing and body casting.
Artists in the show: Tomie Arai, Audrey Anastasi, Kabuya Bowens, Annex Burgos, Cybil Charlier, Maria Dominguez, Sandra Fernandez, Janet Goldner, Marina Gutierrez, Valerie Hammond, Janet Henry, Robin Holder, Rodriguez Calero, Martha Jackson Jarvis, Charlotte Ka, Olivia Beens, Lynn Marshal-Linnemeier, Carla Lobmier, Shervone Neckles, Quimetta Perle, Nora Rodriguez-Vallés, Miriam Schaer, Mary Ting, Nitza Tufiño
