Artist Talk: Elizabeth Malaska

Join Russo Lee Gallery for an artist talk with Elizabeth Malaska. Malaska will be discussing her debut exhibition with Russo Lee Gallery, Heavenly Bodies. In Heavenly Bodies Malaska paints large tableaux which position the female form as the prime protagonist and instigator in art history. Exploring the embodied experience of the feminine subject under patriarchy, Malaska mines the power given to historically sanctioned signs and re-purposes them along more equitable lines. Malaska is gaining a critical reputation for paintings that explore the place of the female body in a range of art historical contexts, raising issues about femininity, power, domination, and vulnerability, with contemporary social and political implications.
