This event has ended.

Susan Eley Fine Art announces the opening of Dwelling , a group show featuring seven women artists curated by Alie Smith. Artists include Jen Davis, Amy Greenan, Charlotta María Hauksdóttir, Emily LaCour, Kathy Osborn, Alie Smith, and Jeanette Spicer.

The relationship between women and the interior is a precarious one that walks the line between comfort and confinement, primal drives and historical influences. Intimate spaces provide one with feelings of safety, triggering the desire to be housed and sheltered. A place for the dreamer to dwell and contemplate, to access hidden truths and memories. But these spaces also absorb the traumas and sufferings that one endures both as an individual, and as a woman who has historically been confined to the home. Because of this dichotomy, an intimate sp ace become s a weighted concept. It is the job of the artist to navigate polarities; to open them up, spill them out, and swim in the discordant waters to create something that provokes a challenging conversation with the viewer.

The seven women in Dwelling investigate the precarity of the interior . Their artistic expressions serve as a sampling of the myriad of ways in which women experience and relate to intimate spaces. Some find empowerment and security in a space that they can own and control, while others delve into the historical and personal traumas that the interior can evoke.
