Allegory for the Muse with Projet Pangée at NADA House
From the press release:
For NADA House's third edition, Projet Pangée is proud to present Allegory for the Muse, a solo exhibition by Rose Nestler in which the artist revisits four historical artworks to question the shackles of patriarchy and its effects on the appropriation of the female figure. Through her striking albeit comical sculptures and video work, the Brooklyn-based artist makes explicit the potential of power that resides in the materiality of textiles. By playing with scale, color, languages of sexuality and humor, and by blending craft-based sewing techniques with historical canons, Nestler subverts our reading of art history and the conventional, trite, feminine characteristics entrapped within it, presenting their revised, bold forms as attributes for liberty.
