rodolphe janssen is pleased to announce its participation in two upcoming fairs this fall, FIAC and Art Basel Miami Beach with a special project titled Women Words.
Women Words 1
Emily Mae Smith
Our booths at both fairs will be dedicated to showing the work of the gallery’s female artists spanning across various generations. New works by these artists will be on view, covering painting, sculpture, drawing and print media. Drawing upon the past years’ global interest in women’s rights and in a time where the position of female actors in the art world has been the topic of numerous discussions, we feel the importance of showing key works by a strong group of women from different backgrounds and generations, some of whom the gallery has been representing for over 10 years.
Women Words takes its title from an ongoing series of text based paintings by Betty Tompkins.
