About Women Painting:
Women Painting is a video project produced by Girls' Club Collection, a non-profit private collection and alternative art space focusing on contemporary art by women. Inspired by the historic 1970s documentary Painters Painting, Women Painting explores the world of contemporary painting, from the perspective of female artists in the collection of Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz, Girls' Club's founders.
The project included an exhibition of 52 works from the collection, on view at MDC Kendall Gallery (just closed last month); a catalog with texts from Wanda Texon, Ann Landi of Vasari21.com, and a fiction piece by Denise Delgado; and a documentary-style video interviewing 11 artists from different backgrounds and generations on the topic of "Women painting".
The video interviews artists Harumi Abe, Elisabeth Condon, Julie Davidow, Louise Fishman, Joanne Greenbaum, Sharon Horvath, Amy Mahnick, Beatriz Monteavaro, Vickie Pierre, Joan Snyder and Shoshanna Weinberger in their studios in Miami, Hollywood, New York and New Jersey. Interviewed and filmed by Girls' Club directors Sarah Michelle Rupert and Michelle Weinberg, the artists share their personal history, backgrounds, and theories on arts, life and feminism. The film is edited by award-winning artists/film makers Cara Despain and Kenny Riches.
