Another Energy: Power to Continue Challenging. 16 Women Artists from around the World
Mori Art Museum – April 22 to September 26, 2021 Tokyo (Japan)
The last few years have seen growing movements around the world to correct inequalities around aspects of identity such as gender. The race. Ethnicity and beliefs, and attach greater value to diversity. Always in contemporary art for ten years. Attention has increasingly turned to women artists. Who began their careers in contemporary art between the 1950s and 1970s. They continue to remain active as artists today.
Another Energy focuses on 16 of these female artists aged 70 or older. Coming from all over the world, who continue to take on new challenges. Aged 71 to 105 with a career spanning over 50 years. Hailing from 14 different countries and equally diverse in their current situation. Nonetheless, what these women share. Regardless of recognition or evaluation by art museums and the art market. It is a determination to pursue their own path of creation. Distinctive with an unwavering conviction in different environments. And this at changing times.
Showcasing their wide array of powerful works ranging from paintings. Videos. Sculptures, to large-scale installations and performances. This exhibit contemplates the nature of particular force. “Another Energy” – from those women who have all continued to challenge throughout their long careers. As we try to recover from an unprecedented situation. Perhaps the sight of those women who have spent their lives walking their own path with such unwavering conviction will give us new energy to meet the challenges of today.
