Review: CAC's Mark of the Feminine


What is the purpose of a show comprised of female and feminine-identified artists? Mark of the Feminine, now on display at the CAC, declines to indicate one specifically. “Mark of the ‘Feminine’ is not necessarily a narrative theme show, or a feminist manifesto, but more like a question about the term itself,” writes curator Regine Basha in the show’s introductory statement. The contributors to this show draw on pain, joy, memory, humor, and triumph, a variety of experience that seems as if it ought not fit in one gallery.


Today in NOLA: 8.20.14
