Phoebe Boswell, Carolina Caycedo, Evelyn Taocheng Wang
4 June – 4 August 2019
Phoebe Boswell (b. 1982, Kenya) combines traditional draftswomanship and digital technology in The words I do not have yet (2018). The words of poet Audre Lorde and Kenyan activist Wambui Mwangi with other female voices are overlaid on drawings of women’s contested bodies.
Apariciones/Apparitions (2018) by Carolina Caycedo (b. 1978, US) features costumed dancers performing in The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens in Los Angeles. Brown, black and queer bodies, informed by the rituals associated with the Afro-Brazilian deity Oxum, take over historically white institutions.
In The Interview (2017) Evelyn Taocheng Wang (b. 1981, China) discusses Western and Eastern approaches to art history with a curator at the Frans Hals Museum. A male model walks by in underwear in a playful take on ‘ideal proportions’ and the objectification of the male body.
