group show: Dorothea Tanning in 'She Models For Her', The Shed, New York

19 June - 25 August 2019


She Models for Her, curated by Maryam Hoseini and Phoebe d'Heurleis, is part of the inaugural exhibition, Open Call, at The Shed, New York. In She Models For Her, Hoseini and d’Heurle imagine a way of engaging with other artists across time by bringing together artworks by artists from today and past decades. She Models For Her contextualizes the work of Suzanne Valadon—a 19th-century French painter who began as a model and became one of the most famous female painters of her time—with work by Hoseini and d’Heurle and other historical and contemporary paintings, photographs, and sculptures from artists Emma Amos, Anne Cousineau, Zackary Drucker + A.L. Steiner, Hadi Fallahpisheh, Rosa Loy, Lucas Samaras, Diane Simpson, and Dorothea Tanning. In juxtaposing these works, She Models For Her explores the complex entanglements between representational art and daily life.
