Being Woman brings together sculptures as diverse in concept as in execution by five accomplished women sculptors. Although much progress has been made toward achieving equality in the workforce, political sphere and at home, curator Brigitte Micmacker notes, “Many American women’s lives are still veritable obstacle courses, avoiding injustice, brutality and insults on a daily basis, while attempting to achieve a grounding and balanced self-image in spite of the constant din of media input.”

In this context, Micmacker has asked five remarkable women sculptors to bring their perspective to this exhibition: Bella Feldman, Jane Burton, Gale Hart, Carol Koffel and Suzanne Morlock. In their powerful conceptual works, tackling issues including cultural near-taboos such as gun ownership and violence, body image and control, woman’s work versus “real” work and the still ubiquitous glass ceiling, they explore how being a woman in a male dominated world continues to inform their life and art practice.

During the lively panel discussion that brought together these five powerful women for the first time on the exhibition’s opening day, October 5, 2014, Micmacker asked each artist to elaborate on her life and artistic path, and moderated a discussion on the issues facing women today in the society at large and in the art world. The entire event was recorded on video, which will be available for viewing at a later date.
