The Kate Oh Gallery will open its doors to the all-women’s art show, “Matrixes” from August 9th through August 27th.
Matrixes, related to the Latin word for “mother,” originally meant “pregnant animal” or “breeding female” and was later generalized to mean “womb.” Matrixes include any nurturing or supportive setting or substance usually within the fields of math and the sciences.
The idea for Matrixes Small Works derives from ideas conceived of by Elizabeth Riley and Christina Massey. An inaugural show was in 2018 and curated by Riley at the Abrazo Interno Gallery at The Clemente, NYC.
Riley stated: This “female collaborative group … has undertaken an experimental exhibition employing an open approach, rather than an umbrella approach. The artists … have traveled on overlapping paths in New York City’s art communities, and in their art practices. While their artwork demonstrates a variety of strategies and materials, and they are from diverse backgrounds, they appreciate their commonalities in a hectic world and divisive cultural moment, and pass around hats as to the curatorial/organizational roles each engages.
Matrixes Small Works celebrates the diversity and overlapping paths of these artists. The Kate Oh Gallery provides the environment to allow these creative connections to evolve and flourish.
This show brings together female artists who nurture each other and connect through the lens of their personal circumstances. These artists employ their perceptions, intuition and creative powers to bring into existence new and honest work. ….. Curator, Jaynie Crimmins
