Women on the line

About Women on the Line

Women on the Line explores the formal and metaphorical implications of lines. To suggest that someone or something is “on the line” is to acknowledge both its vulnerability and necessity.
This metaphor is particularly potent for the artists of A.I.R. Gallery, whose 45-year old mission has always been to support a demographic of artists whose work has been systematically underrepresented and critically under-recognized. Their feminist desires and demands have been embedded into the structure of the gallery and continue to unfold in their artistic practices. To this day, some A.I.R. artists explicitly create feminist projects while others address feminism in more abstract modes. The intent is not to identify essentializing femininity; rather, the exhibition demonstrates how feminist artists today are furthering women artists’ concerns through formal and emotive techniques.
