BETTINA VON ZWEHL: REVIVAL, NATIONAL MUSEUM OF WOMEN IN THE ARTS, WASHINGTON DC 23 JUNE - 10 SEPTEMBER 2017

Through highly allusive depictions of human and other animal bodies, each artist in Revival connects to the unconscious. Large scale sculptures, photographs, and video installations create immersive, mesmeric environments. Smaller, painstaking fabricated works draw the viewer close, beckoning toward sensations that spark memory and emotion to deliver strong sensorial impact.

Featuring work by Louise Bourgeois, Petah Coyne, Laila Essaydi, Polly Morgan, Joana Vasconcelos, Bettina von Zwehl, and others, Revival illuminates women who regenerate sculpture and photo-based work to profound effect.
