"Ja jako Roberta" Lynn Hershmann Leeson
Lynn Hershman Leeson “Me as Roberta”
Opening October 8, 2012, 7 pm, Galeria No Women No Art (WSNHiD)
The exibition will be open till December 5, 2012
No Women No Art gallery, Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow and University of Humanities and Journalism (WSNHiD) in Poznan invite you to the individual exhibition of American artist, the icon of American feminist art of 1970s. During the exhibition we will be able to see photographs from the series Roberta Breitmore created between 1974-1978. They are a documentation of a project during which the artist posed as a 30-year-old woman, Roberta Breitmore. She changed not only her looks but also outlined the personality of the character, who was treated as an authentic person by the environment.
The aim of the exhibition is to show how a woman-artist has donned a new personality, inscribing it into the current reality and social structures.
