KUKULI VELARDE: THE COMPLICIT EYE
November 16, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Reception for the Complicit Eye
The Complicit Eye, Kukuli Velarde’s first major exhibition in Philadelphia of paintings and sculptures, deconstructs ideals of female beauty from colonization to the local barrio. A 2015 Guggenheim fellow, Velarde’s show features work that interrogates the construction and consumption of beauty in Western culture, with self-portraits of her as “the other”– a woman, an immigrant, or merely a mature body, and sculptures that flip the male gaze. The show also showcases her performance drawings, a freehand mural she will work on during the first ten days the show./Exhibición de pinturas, esculturas, ceramic, que deconstruye los ideales de belleza desde la colonización hasta el barrio.
