DISILLUSIONMENT PROJECT FALL 2018

During a studio visit Marina Gutierrez and I compared artworks we had created -- two wedding gowns revealing narratives of disenchantment. We discussed how this theme is particularly meaningful in the current cultural, political and social climate as our society is enveloped in conflict, frustration, and tension. 

We invited 24 accomplished artists, all women, to create a work about DISILLUSIONMENT addressing issues of deception, falseness, betrayal with reference to wearing, inhabiting, being veiled or draped in disillusion. The artwork generated by this impressively diverse group of artists ranges from ‘me too’ narratives, to racial inequity, national brutality, hurricane Maria experiences to feminine empowerment. The media and methods used range from welded steel, painted and printed fabrics, assemblage, paper collage, sewn materials to body casting. Ronnie Bellini coordinated an exhibition of these works at Taller Boricua to celebrate Women’s History Month in March 2018

Currently documenting this project, along with Janet Goldner, we have been video taping interviews with each artist employing a collection of unexpected and penetrating questions. The video we are now editing of this unique community of artists reflects the passion, inspiration, challenges, vision and creative practice of a formidable group of visionary women artists.
