The Swell Gallery presents UNRAVELING, a group show curated by Kathy Sirico and Aaron Wilder featuring work by Robin Crofut-Brittingham, Peter Rajani, Christie Spillane, Arika von Edler Bready, and Yin-Hsiang Wang.
Unraveling explores unfolding narratives of gender told in relation to mythology, legend, personal history, and fantasy. Narratives of femininity intertwine with questions of masculinity and ambiguity. Boundaries of reality, memory, fiction, and fantasy intertwine and blur, questioning stereotypes and reorganizing identities. We enter a land of witch-hunts, fever dreams, and sexual desires. Place becomes a body, scarred by trauma. This show aims to find and unravel our own stereotypes while giving birth to new ways of looking at identity.
