Kelly Reemtsen: In the Loop Livestream Online

When: April 28-May 12 2020
Kelly Reemtsen is best known for her iconic depictions of the modern day woman. Strikingly feminine at first glance, in designer dresses and runway-worthy accessories, Reemtsen's women are not simply fashionistas or arm candy. Rather, these women, dressed to the nines, undertake tasks that are often traditionally masculine, requiring the use of power tools such as chainsaws, wrenches, and bolt cutters. Their stance ranges from domestic to menacing and yet, as a body of work, address the question: What is the role of the contemporary woman? Reemtsen answers that question with a resounding "Anything!" The presentation of her subjects is anonymous by choice, they could be Any Woman, both feminine and powerful. This online exhibition features paintings, drawings and prints produced in her Los Angeles and London studios.
