All of Them Witches

"This exhibition arose from a conversation we’ve been having for years about our shared affinity for a certain kind of art to which we’re drawn, can’t quite name, but recognize when we see it. Artworks and artists that share an affinity with what we thought of as a “witchy” sensibility, which we see as using the iconography of the supernatural, occult, and witchcraft to channel ideas about power, the body, and gender.

While we respect the history and context of real-practice occult, this is a show about the aesthetic influence of those traditions, not the actual practice behind it. Multiple generations and media will be present, from painting (Hollis Sigler, Gertrude Abercrombie), drawing (Heather Benjamin, Cameron), sculpture (Audrey Flack, Greer Lankton), videos (Marilyn Minter’s Green Caviar), and photographs (Cindy Sherman, Bea Nettles).

In a time of constant historical and thematic artistic rediscoveries, we present a breadcrumb trail that already exists—a language shared across generations of artists who partake in a knowledge of, and taste for, a bit of the cauldron and a touch of darkness."
