   Clough-Hanson Gallery Opening Reception for "Faith Wilding: Fearful Symmetries"

   Date : Friday, 5 September 2014       From : 6:00pm   To : 8:00pm
   Category : Arts       Location : Clough-Hanson Gallery


   Event Description :

Clough-Hanson Gallery is honored to present "Fearful Symmetries," the first retrospective exhibition of the influential feminist artist, Faith Wilding. Widely known as a performance artist, Wilding was a key figure in the formation of the first Feminist Art Program in Fresno in 1970, and at Cal Arts in 1971. She was a major contributor to the now historical collaborative feminist installation Womanhouse, sited in an abandoned mansion in Los Angeles in 1972, where she performed her highly celebrated work "Waiting."

"Fearful Symmetries" brings together a selection of works from Wilding's studio practice spanning the past 40 years, highlighting a range of works on paper—drawings, watercolors, collage and paintings.

Free and open to the public, the show runs Sept. 5-Oct. 4. The opening reception is 6-8 p.m. on Sept. 5.
