Review for Women's eNews, New York, NY, USA
Woman’s e-news is important for woman worldwide. You are getting our message out, This is very important. We, as women, need a voice and You make a difference, for women's equality. Women's e-news both informs and inspires me. It is important to see the steady and relentless efforts worldwide to help turn the tide of oppression and lack of awareness of the status of women. The event that I held was intended to wake up the public of the inequality of the genders that is still prevalent in today’s art world. It went very well. Passerby’s loved my sculpture “Tree”. I hope that this will make a difference when it comes to women being able to exhibit their sculptures in public places. I am asking for your help to make the changes happen. All the best to you and your wonderful E-News! Thank you. Carole Feuerman FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Carole Feuerman’s Sculpture “Tree” to be Photographed on the Corner of 23rd Street & 5th Avenue at 12:00 pm May 21, 2010 This Friday, May 21, at 12:00 pm, New York-based artist Carole Feuerman will have a showing of her sculpture, Tree, which will be placed next to the Antony Gormley’s nude bronze figure. Viewers will be able to see Feuerman’s version of “Eve and Adam” in Madison Square Park on the corner of 23rd Street and 5th Avenue. Tree, 2009, Oil and Resin, 62” x 16” x 12” Courtesy of Jim Kempner Fine Art photo: Ellen Page Wilson For the past thirty years, Feuerman has consistently encountered obstacles when exhibiting her sensual artwork. After being admonished by several public institutions, including three museums, for trying to exhibit her nude female figures. The institutions, suggesting that her work was inappropriate for public display, have similarly allowed for male nude figures to exist on their premise. This double standard, for which many public art institutions are known for, is meant to be highlighted with the temporary showing of Tree next to Gormley’s nude male figure from his current exhibit, Event Horizon. Feuerman hopes that this temporary showing, inspired by her personal and professional experiences as a female artist, will serve as a platform to address women’s issues in art and society. She states that this installation is not about either artist or their individual intentions, but more about the landscapes open to men in society and not to women. A recipient of the Peabody Award, the Betty Parson Sculpture Award and the Medici Awards, Carole Feuerman’s sculpture has been in museum exhibitions and galleries throughout the world. Past solo exhibitions include a retrospective at the Amarillo Museum of Art in Texas in 2008; By the Sea, curated by John T. Spike at the Pavilion Paradiso at the Venice Biennale; and a one person show at Jim Kempner Fine Art in New York City. Recent exhibitions include Carole A. Feuerman: Reality Check at Sculpturesite Gallery, CA; Psychedelic: Optical and Visionary Art since the 1960’s at the San Antonio Museum of Art, San Antonio, TX; and an upcoming retrospective at the El Paso Museum of Art in El Paso, TX.
