SAMUEL FOSSO 'UNFINISHED CONVERSATIONS: NEW WORK FROM THE COLLECTION' MOMA GROUP EXHIBITION REVIEWED IN THE NY TIMES

'MoMa has a history of excluding not only black artists but also women. (...) “Unfinished Conversations” is neither a corrective nor a direct response to this history and reputation, but the exhibition makes strides. It includes a great deal of work by artists of varying racial, ethnic, and class backgrounds, and avoids trumpeting the familiar self-congratulatory liberal politics—a tuneless, corporatized gospel of diversity. Instead, the curators have managed to emphasize the work itself over the identities of the artists and, crucially, without using this approach as a justification for excluding work by women and artists of color.'

BETTINA VON ZWEHL: REVIVAL, NATIONAL MUSEUM OF WOMEN IN THE ARTS, WASHINGTON DC 23 JUNE - 10 SEPTEMBER 2017

Through highly allusive depictions of human and other animal bodies, each artist in Revival connects to the unconscious. Large scale sculptures, photographs, and video installations create immersive, mesmeric environments. Smaller, painstaking fabricated works draw the viewer close, beckoning toward sensations that spark memory and emotion to deliver strong sensorial impact.

Featuring work by Louise Bourgeois, Petah Coyne, Laila Essaydi, Polly Morgan, Joana Vasconcelos, Bettina von Zwehl, and others, Revival illuminates women who regenerate sculpture and photo-based work to profound effect.
