Underneath It All - Opening Reception

Opening Reception will feature presentations by artists at 5pm, first chance to see the exhibition at 6pm, and artist introduction to the exhibition at 7pm. Live music, food and drink.  Free.

Flagstaff Cultural Partners is proud to present Underneath It All: Desire, Power, Memory & Lingerie – an art exhibition featuring the work of ten women artists from all over the United States who create or use underwear as objects or topics in their work. Each artist has a vivid and personal point-of-view and talent.

Underneath It All explores many topic including: body image, sexuality, empowerment, privacy, women’s roles, equality, and many others, as lingerie embodies all of these issues in our society. There are three main ideas organizing this exhibition; desire, power, and memory. These ideas are visually represented through various mediums including painting, drawing, printmaking, bookmaking, textiles, papermaking, assemblage, sculpture and collage. “Each artist has a vivid and personal point-of-view and talent,” says Diane Bronstein, who developed the concept and is one of the artists featured in the exhibition.

The exhibition is traveling around the country, being shown in galleries and art centers, the first being Minneapolis this past summer. Next is Flagstaff, followed by Massachusetts and New York in 2013. The ten women artists featured in the exhibition include Ingrid Goldbloom Bloch, Diane Bronstein, Julie Harris, Laura Ann Jacobs, Joanne Kaliontzis, Lisa Knox, Erica Spitzer Rasmussen, Diane Savona, Miriam Schaer, and Amanda N. Simons.
