Watch the video of Dr. John Paul Rollert speaking about Amar Gallery's exhibition 'Hiding in Plain Sight'. Gain insight into the bustling world of 1950's downtown Manhattan, a hive of restless energy and burgeoning feminist attitude.
Dr. John Paul Rollert teaches extensively at both Chicago University and Harvard. In his choices, Rollert makes clear his intention to celebrate American women whose work has been almost entirely overlooked - so much so that many of these artists have never been exhibited in the United Kingdom before. ‘These women were at the forefront of the first great movement in contemporary art that American artists uniquely championed,’ Rollert states, ‘and yet they have never been recognised for their remarkable contributions. In fact, so overlooked were they by their peers that, at the end of this period in 1971, the art critic and historian Linda Nochlin could famously ask: ‘why have there been no great women artists?’ The answer: they were hiding in plain sight.’ Watch our video of curator Dr. John Paul Rollert speaking about Amar Gallery's exhibition "Hiding in Plain Sight'. An exhibition celebrating female abstract expressionist of the 1950's and 1960's New York.
The exhibition runs until 13th December 2018. For more information contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
