On Thursday, February 8, 2018 A New Subjectivity: Figurative Painting After 2000, an exhibition composed entirely of paintings by women and attempting to categorize Expressionism in new terms, featured works by Gina Beavers, Katherine Bernhardt, Katherine Bradford, Jackie Gendel, Liz Markus, and Rose Wylie. Referencing cartoons, fashion spreads, and personal narratives, the artists addressed the fragmentation of individual subjectivity in a technological world. The new figuration is thereby performative, rather than prescriptive, and both absurd and sincere approaches to the subject matter were embraced by the artists.
