The College of Architecture + The Arts’s Peggy Levison Nolan, Adjunct Professor, is featured in a new exhibition by Girls’ Club called Making Space: Beyond a Room at Broward College’s Rosemary Duffy Larson Gallery. Nolan was also a participant in a a panel discussion for the exhibition that took place on Thursday, November 20th.
The following information about the exhibition is provided by The Rosemary Duffy Larson Gallery.
Making Space: Beyond a Room is a multi-media exhibition that builds upon the discussion of women’s creative practice and access presented in Virginia Woolf’s 1929 feminist essay, “A Room of One’s Own.” This exhibition examines the current status of creative space for female artists today and how this space is constructed and defended by both male and female artists. The works in the exhibition incorporate solutions that are abstracted, actual, invented and psychological, demonstrating the myriad ways that artists make space, and the diversity ultimately produced by them.
Curated from the private collection of Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz, Making Space features contemporary work from internationally and nationally renowned artists as well as prominent local artists, including: Tracey Emin, Mickalene Thomas and Rania Matar, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Scott Daniel Ellison, Kate Gilmore, Peggy Levison Nolan, Teresa Diehl and Julie Davidow.
Public programming accompanying the exhibition includes a panel discussion and a poetry reading.
The Rosemary Duffy Larson Gallery is located at 3501 SW Davie Rd Building 6, Davie, FL 3331 and is free and open to public. Gallery hours are Monday – Saturday from 9am – 3pm, with extended hours on Wednesday from 9am – 8pm, or by appointment.
