Lifting the veil: 11 international female artists

8 April - 27 May 2016

rosenfeld porcini is proud to present ‘Lifting the Veil’ a themed exhibition including works by Claudia Fontes, Argentina; Silvia Hatzl, Germany; Bongsu Park, Korea; Rossana Zaera, Spain; Marianna Gioka, Greece; Firelei Baez, Dominican Republic; Alice Cattaneo, Italy; Luisa Rabbia, Italy; Teodora Axente, Romania;  Arushee Suri, India; and Miyuki Tsugami, Japan. The exhibition intends to look beyond the artists’ narratives to examine the formal and poetic interpretations they adopt in their chosen artistic languages. ‘Lifting the Veil’ is rosenfeld porcini’s sixth themed exhibition, following ‘Around Drawing’ last year.


There has been a visible increase in recent years of all-female contemporary art exhibitions notably The Rubell Family Collection’s ‘No Man’s Land’ (Miami) and Saatchi Gallery’s ‘Champagne Life’ (London). This attention is primarily a reaction to the perceived gender imbalance in society and more specifically in the art world. However, rosenfeld porcini’s decision to bring together these eleven international women artists has another intention. ‘Lifting the Veil’ is not aiming to make a statement about what it is to be a female artist in our contemporary society, but rather looks at a selected group of artists from very different cultures and backgrounds in order to examine if there is a common sensibility that links their practices, even though their narrative concerns vary greatly.
