Frances Lazare Gallery Talk - West Coast Women of Abstract Expressionism
July 18, 2023
June 20, 2023 - Lisa Berins for FrankfurterRundschau
It's hot, the streets are dusty: the sun was just before its summer turning point and had set glisteningly, aligned exactly with the street grid, at the end of the high-rise canyons. "Manhattanhenge" is what people in New York call it, they push themselves to the busy intersections, fearless in traffic, to shoot the perfect picture. Then the sooty, tawny smoke from Canada's wildfires swept across the streets, turning the city into an eerie backdrop: the end of the world seemed imminent. He didn't come, for now. Instead, you saw something blossom; a vision, or at least a possible promising future. With a seismographic flair, the art scene takes a look beyond the current situation. In the museums and galleries of the metropolis: female and diverse perspectives, self-determination.
