“Pin Up” featuring the work of Claudia Huenchuleo, Derek Cracco, Gillian O’Shea, Marie-Pier Frigon, Nina Wright, Victor Barbieri, Walter Aprile and Winnie van der Rijn will open May 20th at the Classic Car West Gallery in Oakland.
The show will run through June with special events including First Friday artist reception on June 2nd, and Saturday Stroll openings May 20th and June 17th.
From the coyly adventurous calendar girl hanging on locker-room walls to Instagram and high fashion spreads, representations and notions of femininity, feminism and female identity are shifting. Who or what is the “ideal”; who interprets and owns this new standard?
Taking on fascination with weaponized sexuality, cheeky twists on the traditional supine, passive nude and the “candid” snapshot “Pin Up!” artists bring an array of views and perspectives together to challenge and celebrate the idealized female form.
