Summer group exhibition round-up VII. Strength, perseverance, adaptability, knowing how to ignore bad advice, grit, tenacity. According to Forbes magazine, these are just a few traits that women possess to make it to the top of the annual list of the 100 Most Powerful Women in the World. If you ask art impresario Yvonne Force Villareal, curator of “Seed”, an exhibition of twenty-nine living women artists currently on view at Paul Kasmin Gallery, you would need to add destructive, foolish, creative, emotional, enlightened, and intuitive. Linking together the spiritual and the physical and working across a variety of media and styles, the show brings together a group of intergenerational women artists that include Theodora Allen, Morgan Blair, Sascha Braunig, Cecily Brown, Ginny Casey, Jessica Craig-Martin, Rachel Feinstein, Vanessa German, Loie Hollowell, Shara Hughes, Baseera Khan, Sanam Khatibi, Kate Klingbeil, Hein Koh, Emily Marie Miller, Wangechi Mutu, Sophia Narrett, Katherina Olschbaur, Yoko Ono, Ebony G. Patterson, Sarah Peters, Ruby Sky Stiler, Claire Tabouret, Ambera Wellmann, Summer Wheat, Robin F. Williams, Hiejin Yoo, Lisa Yuskavage, and Sarah Zapata.Without framing women into social, cultural, and political contexts, the exhibition runs on an esoteric undercurrent and celebrates the beauty, strength, brilliance and diversity of modern womanhood. Here is a detail of the incredibly intricate embroidery tableau “Stuck” by Sophia Narrett. At Paul Kasmin through August 10.
