Locks Gallery artists in PAFA's "Taking Space"

Alyson Shotz, Plane Weave (2016), 120 x 169 x 36 inches, PAFA Commission.

Taking Space: Contemporary Women Artists and the Politics of Scale examines the approaches of women artists for whom space is a critical feature of their work, whether they take the space on a wall, the real estate of a room through sculpture and installation, engage seriality as a spatial visual practice, cast a wide legacy in art history or claim the space of their body. This exhibition invites viewers to consider how size and repetition can be interpreted as political gestures in the practices of many women artists.

Featured artists include Polly Apfelbaum, Jennifer Bartlett, Louise Fishman, Nancy Graves, Ellen Harvey, Elizabeth Murray, Louise Nevelson, and Alyson Shotz among others.
