Under the Influence explores the phenomenon of cross-pollination that occurs at every level of arts production today. The work on view is selected from the Girls’ Club collection of works by contemporary women artists and from other artists and other art collections.
Under the Influence demonstrates the multi-faceted roles artists play in the contemporary art scene. Artists as curators exert a powerful influence on posterity, re-shaping the context in which artwork is seen and understood. The three curators/artists organizing the exhibition play multiple roles in the arts community, and their individual aesthetic and conceptual leanings will be felt.
Assembled by a curatorial team of three artists – collector and Girls’ Club founder Francie Bishop Good, Girls’ Club Director and arts writer Michelle Weinberg, and Curator of Exhibitions at Art & Culture Center of Hollywood and art consultant Jane Hart - it exists in two parts. Works were simultaneously presented at Girls’ Club and the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood. This video tours through the Girls' Club experience.
