WTF Special Exhibition at ArtPalmBeach 2018

The anticipated exhibition WTF at ArtPalmBeach January 17-21, 2018 is curated by PoetsArtists publisher Didi Menendez. WTF is about women. Women who are painting whatever they want. In the last decade, a new art movement surged around Women Painting Women established by Alia El-Bermani, Diane Feissel and Sadie Valeri.

‘You fill it with yourself, or it dies’, Erin Milan, Oil on Linen, 45 × 58 inches, 2017.

 

Many exhibitions and publications sprang across the USA with works by women painting women yet women are still not acknowledged as well as men and are a minority showing in museums and galleries. Even though the Women Painting Women movement paved the way for this exhibition, WTF takes the work of this movement further and asks why do women have to paint only women to be recognized?
