QUATTRO DONNE. Four women artists from Switzerland and the USA grant us an insight into their creative practices by way of their most recent artistic output. It is tempting to look for the typically feminine in the expression and the materiality of their works. Is there such a thing as typically feminine art? Can we tell just from looking at a work of art if it was a feminine or a masculine spirit that whispered into the artist’s ear or if the hand that executed it was that of a man or a woman? Is there such a thing as a feminine and a masculine perception and, if so, how does that manifest in an artist’s work? In the exhibition QUATTRO DONNE, only women are represented. In the gallery space, their works enter into a spatial relationship and thereby a dialogue with each other. Interesting questions and possibly some answers relating to that dialogue and the broader context of the feminine in art will be discussed in the ARTIST TALK.
