Galerie Xll Los Angeles is presenting a pioneering show about women seen and emboldened by women. Women artists have played a vibrant role in art, some of them have changed the art world forever like Frida Khalo, Georgia O'Keeffe, Augusta Savage, or Elaine Sturtevant. Women.On.Women (WOW) celebrates women and devotes itself to honoring their artistic accomplishments.
The show, featuring the work of five artists, explores different ways of expressing the strength and beauty of the female spirit. The models, which are often the artists themselves, are represented anonymously in either a poetic, atypical colorful or sensual way the embraces woman hood in its complex and multifaceted totality.
Founded by Valerie-Anne Giscard d’Estaing, the daughter of former French President Valery Giscard d’Estaing, Galerie XII LA’s curatorial goal is to showcase the pioneering works of photographic artists from Europe and Asia – many of whom have not shown their work on the West Coast before - to the Los Angeles community. Valerie-Anne says, "This exhibition highlights female artists’ work on the female form. From a diverse array of backgrounds, each artist has something unique to express and was chosen because their perspective on what it feels like to be a woman is respectful and urges the viewer to be contemplative.” Galerie XII Los Angeles located at BergamotStation ArtsCenter (2525 Michigan Ave. Suite B2, Santa Monica, CA 90404), open Wednesday – Saturday from 11am – 6pm or by appointment: (424) 252 9004
