 The Everson Museum Presents

“Angela Fraleigh: Between  Tongue  and  Teeth”

Exhibition on display from September 24 - December 31, 2016

 

SYRACUSE, NY (September 15, 2016) – Between Tongue and Teeth, Angela Fraleigh’s first major museum exhibition, brings together over a decade of the artist’s works which question and reimagine women’s roles in art history, literature, and contemporary media. In a bravura style that weaves together realism and abstraction, Fraleigh creates striking works ranging from intimate portraits to monumental figure paintings. The exhibition features more than 30 pieces, including several new paintings and sculptures inspired by women activists, artists, and designers, as well as previous works based on historical paintings.

The exhibition opens to the public on Saturday, September 24th, preceded by an Exhibition Preview Reception on Friday, September 23rd from 6:30-8:00 pm (free to Everson Members; $15 non-members).  The artist will be in attendance, as will artist Marie Lorenz whose exhibition, Tide and Current Taxi, is also opening. Fraleigh will present an artist’s talk on October 13th  and Lorenz will present a lecture on November 17th, both at the Everson at 6:30 pm.

Since the mid-2000s, Fraleigh has explored power dynamics related to gender, sexuality, and class through depictions of mythical and historical female figures. Fraleigh’s heroines, set within abstract, dream-like settings, frequently hail from centuries-old European paintings or other male-dominated sources where they have been relegated to the margins or shadows. Fraleigh liberates these peripheral characters and re-casts them as daring protagonists within newly-constructed narratives, thereby restoring their autonomy, agency, and power.

Fraleigh’s environments couple the seen with the unseen:  swirling abstract spaces combine with bold voids of color; thick pours of paint or lustrous metallic leafing obscure fleshy forms; turned heads and cropped faces reject the viewer’s gaze. The ambiguity of these richly painted worlds, and the secretive nature of the females who inhabit them, create an unmistakable sense of allure. However, the resistance of Fraleigh’s female protagonists to submission, helplessness, or passive visual consumption, challenges the roles women have traditionally occupied within artistic space.

Angela Fraleigh: Between Tongue and Teeth is curated by Elizabeth Dunbar, Director and CEO of the Everson Museum of Art. The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated publication that includes essays by Kelly Baum, Curator of Post War and Contemporary Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Jennifer Tyburczy, author of Sex Museums: The Politics and Performance of Display, as well as an interview with the artist conducted by Dunbar.

Between Tongue and Teeth is sponsored by Nicole & Michael P. Falcone and Cecily E. Horton, with support from Aminy Audi, Susan A. Estabrook, Bonnie & Gary Grossman, and Bobbi & Clifford Malzman, and others.
