TM Sisters Curate I THINK IT'S IN MY HEAD Exhibition at Girls' Club, Opening 11/10
I Think It's In My Head, Girls Club, TM Sisters
For its 2013-2014 exhibition, Girls' Club engaged Miami artist team TM Sisters (sisters Monica and Natasha Lopez de Victoria) to collaborate with the collection of contemporary art by women owned by Fort Lauderdale collectors Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz. After viewing works in the collection, the TM Sisters, who themselves create and perform works in a wide range of media, have selected pieces that exerted a powerful attraction, suggesting mysterious energies at play.
Paintings, drawings, prints, video and sculpture works have been chosen for their vivid metaphysics: figures in phases of transformation and metamorphosis, supernatural mysteries, telepathic communication, and explosions of psychic power. In addition to the works themselves, the gallery environment for I think it's in my head will use lighting and color to set an esoteric mood. Special programming aimed at expanding consciousness around art and expanded mental awareness will complement the exhibition.
The exhibition title I think it's in my head, derives from a neon sculpture by British artist Tracey Emin in the collection. Works in all media have been chosen and include internationally renowned artists Barbara Kruger, Jenny Holzer, Ana Mendieta, Beverly Semmes, Lorna Simpson and Catherine Opie. South Florida artists include Harumi Abe, Jen Stark, Samantha Salzinger and more.
Graphic and book designer Augusto Mendoza, of Book are Nice, will design the catalog and announcements for the exhibition. Texts for the catalog will be contributed by TM Sisters, by Claire Evans, lead singer of the band Yacht and by Girls' Club writer-in-residence Vanessa Garcia.
I think it's in my head opens Sunday, November 10, 2013, 5-8pm at a special twilight event.
