Complicated Territory

D O R S K Y G A L L E R Y | Curatorial Programs is pleased to announce the continuation of its program of independently-curated exhibitions--- Complicated Territory curated by Bridget Donlon , will open on Sunday, September 30, 2018 from 2:00-5:00 p.m. and remain on view through December 16, 2018. A color brochure with an essay by the curators has been published to accompany the exhibition. Complicated Territory features three artists, Alex McQuilkin, Erin M. Riley, and Martha Tuttle, whose work encompasses a variety of media including painting, drawing, installation, and embroidery. Taking on traditionally feminine subjects and forms--- interiors, domesticity, self-reflection, florals, pastels, handicraft--- t o explore and critique this identity and how it is regarded in society, these artists create work grounded in feminist (art) history, with cutting sensibilities of irony, detachment, sexuality, and pop culture saturation. Each creates work that delves into the complicated territory of a specific kind of female identity, psychology, and navigation of life. Bridget Donlon is a Brooklyn-based contemporary art professional with experience in curating and arts administration and institutions including the Tang Museum, the Guerrilla Girls, Galerie Lelong, Tate Modern, the Fabric Workshop and Museum, and Dieu Donn é. Recent curatorial projects have included On Reflection at UrbanGlass in Brooklyn and Confluence/Influence in Contemporary Abstraction at Dorsky Gallery Curatorial Programs in Long Island City. She curated Pure Pulp: Contemporary Artist Working in Paper, a 15 year retrospective of works from Dieu Donn é's residency program for the Wellin Museum of Hamilton College, which traveled to the Robert C. Williams Museum of Papermaking at Georgia Tech and the Dedalus Foundation at Industry City, Brooklyn, and was accompanied by a catalog published by Demonico/Prestel.
