PLEASE RECALL TO ME EVERYTHING YOU HAVE THOUGHT OF

PLEASE RECALL TO ME EVERYTHING YOU HAVE THOUGHT OF—a group show of women artists at Morán Morán, curated by Eve Fowler—is on view for one more week.

This highly recommended exhibition includes the work of Etel Adnan, Frances Barth, Donna Dennis, Florence Derive, Simone Fattal, Magdalena Suarez Frimkess, Barbara Hammer, Harmony Hammond, Maren Hassinger, Suzanne Jackson, Virginia Jaramillo, Harriet Korman, Joyce Kozloff, Magali Lara, Mary Lum, Mónica Mayer, Dona Nelson, Senga Nengudi, Howardena Pindell, and Joan Semmel.

“The title of the show is from a Gertrude Stein text that Fowler selected for its ambiguous poetry that she felt honored the artists.”

I’m not asking the artists to tell me anything, but they allowed me in their studios—a private place where artists often feel vulnerable. — Eve Fowler*

GARDEN OF MEMORY

Curated by Mouna Mekouar, GARDEN OF MEMORY is an “ongoing conversation” exploring “bodily communication and intimacy” between the poet and painter Etel Adnan, the sculptor and collagist Simone Fattal, and the theater artist Robert Wilson.

Music by Michael Galasso—played under Wilson’s reading of Adnan’s poem “Conversation with My Soul (III)”—provides an additional element to the exhibition.
