"All These Beautiful Ladies" at the contemporary art fair ArtVilnius'17

From 8 to 11 June in the Lithuanian Exhibition and Congress Centre LITEXPO (Laisvės ave. 5, Vilnius) the international contemporary art fair ArtVilnius’17 will be taking place. For the fourth year in a row, the Lewben Art Foundation is partnering with ArtVilnius and presents the exposition “All These Beautiful Ladies”.

Over the past year, the Lewben Art Foundation has seen the birth of two delightful little girls. From there the idea arose of organising an exhibition that would be a tribute to femininity and would explore its transformation into art: the woman as softness, sinuosity, depth of feelings, fragility and beauty, as a mother or a femme fatale. While the idea for this exhibition transformed itself into a reality, a new wave of women’s protests broke out in the world, which on the one hand make the topic more relevant, but on the other could convert it into something socio-political. While it is true that many artists are reflecting this moment of social and political shake-up, the exhibition maintains a distance from such an interpretation. It aims to be a display that narrates the "doing art" and "being the subject of art" of some of the women artists with the largest followings on the international scene. We are talking about femininity rather than feminism.

The exposition “All These Beautiful Ladies" will present work by nine contemporary artists: Teresa Margolles (Mexico / Spain), Helen Marten (UK), Claire Tabouret (France / USA), Marina Rheingantz (Brazil), Marwa Arsanios (USA / Lebanon), Katja Novitskova (Estonia / Netherlands / Germany), SetP Stanikas (Lithuania / France), Kristina Inčiūraitė (Lithuania) and Tschabalala Self (USA).
