Five Women to Watch at Art Basel

The Guardian and The New York Times both featured articles about the landscape for women artists in the contemporary art world to kick off Miami's Art Basel

This past summer the magazine ArtNews published a special issue on the status of female artists – and the statistics it presented affirmed that the art world still has a whole lot to improve. Less than 30% of the exhibitions at America’s leading museums go to women. The share of women in major group exhibitions, such as the Venice Biennale and Documenta, is far below parity. Women get less attention than men, by some margin, in America’s top art magazines. And then there’s the market: only three in 10 artists with gallery representation are female, and prices for art by women lag persistently behind their male counterparts.
 
We at Jewel Toned fervently believe in authentic creative expression and the power of the arts in cultural development and empowered identity. So, in honor of Miami’s Art Basel this week, here are five women artists (old and new school) to watch, contemplate, support, cultivate, and discuss over cocktails at the next art show or dinner party you attend...

No Man’s Land is not a museum exhibition; it’s a private collection showcase. But the Rubells are shrewd and unorthodox collectors, and the presentation raises some big points – above all, the enduring question of how women artists building on a male-dominated history of art should depict their own sex.

Seductive Subversion: Rosalyn Drexler from Pew Center for Arts & Heritage on Vimeo.

I wonder if the reason Rosalyn Drexler isn’t better known is because she is so good at so many different things. We recognize such mastery in men, but rarely in women.
Drexler was a critical piece of the 60s Pop Art movement (think Warhol, Lichtenstein) but to this day does not share the same historical recognition. Drexler's work was also, considerably more definitively political.
Barham's poetry is one made entirely of anagrams. It's always surreal, packed with nonsensical asides as well as lines that are unexpected delights. "Tasting lemon rapture; purring at lemon taste"
Barham redefines the relationship between the digital and art worlds. Much like the world of electronic music, the constant tension in creation becomes creating works with soul in the midst of technological machinery. Barham's brilliant creative spirit literally illuminates her pieces.

Seducative, fearless, and outrageous, Marina Abramovic has been redefining what art is for nearly forty years. Using her own body as a vehicle, pushing herself beyond her physical and mental limits – and at times risking her life in the process – she creates performances that challenge, shock, and move us. Through her and with her, boundaries are crossed, consciousness expanded, and art as we know it is reborn. She is, quite simply, one of the most compelling artists of our time.

It's not very often that an artist talk sells out with the swiftness of a high-profile pop concert. But that was the case for a highly anticipated talk between artist Kara Walker, who is known for her phantasmagoric cut-paper installations, and filmmaker Ava DuVernay, who is at work on a biopic about Martin Luther King Jr. The pair was teamed up by the Broad as part of the museum's "Un-Private Collection" artist talk series. Within eight hours of putting the tickets on sale this summer, every last one was gone.
Shapewear Jewel Toned Millie Brown Art
Born and raised in England, France and Spain, but a frequent visitor to Los Angeles, performance artist Millie Brown has called the city home since her permanent move stateside in 2013. Perhaps best known as the girl who threw up on Gaga, and then as the girl who locked herself inside a glass box for seven days, Millie’s work pushes both physical and emotional boundaries, and can at times prove somewhat challenging to watch. Viewing the body as a vessel for spiritual practice, Brown pushes physical and mental boundaries to reach a state of enlightenment from which creative expression and healing derives.

 

“My body is the canvas for my art, so makeup has really been important. I want to tell a story with my face. ... There’s so much power that we hold in our faces. When I put on my brows, it’s like I’m drawing on wings.”
