Join us for the Artist Talk & Opening Reception for Happily Ever After, curated by Amie Potsic, Executive Director & Chief Curator of Main Line Art Center. The Artist Talk is from 5:30 to 6:30 pm, with the Opening Reception to follow. Beginning at 6:30 pm, Aubrie Costello will be creating a site-specific installation live during the Happily Ever After opening reception.
Happily Ever After investigates the female gaze, modern femininity, and contemporary challenges to women’s rights. From self-defined vantage points of power, these women artists address the human experience through a female lens in the 21st century – a post-feminist era rife with demands for a new feminism. Addressing pre-pubescent characters, trans and female identities, emotionally charged language, and complex female forms, a single definition of woman is defied. In today’s fairytale, Cinderella is breaking the glass slipper and “happily ever after” remains elusive.
