The Un-Heroic Act: Representations of Rape in Women's Art in the U.S.

Monika Fabijanska

The exhibition “The Un-Heroic Act. Representations of Rape in Contemporary Women’s Art in the US,” scheduled September-October 2018 at the Shiva Gallery at John Jay College for Criminal Justice, CUNY in New York City, proposes a concentrated survey of works devoted to rape, by three generations of women artists including Andrea Bowers, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Jenny Holzer, Suzanne Lacy, Ana Mendieta, Senga Nengudi, Yoko Ono, and Kara Walker. Curated by Monika Fabijanska, it will demonstrate that rape constitutes one of central themes in women’s art and analyze its rich iconography in all mediums.
