Exhibit Dates: November 7–December 2, 2017
Opening reception: Friday, November 17, 6–9 pm
The Archetype: in Jungian psychology, archetypes are defined as “a collectively inherited unconscious idea, pattern of thought, image, etc., universally present in individual psyches.”
The various archetypes of the feminine have long been a rich and varied subject in art. Marilyn Monroe, Mother Teresa, the Virgin Mary, Cleopatra, Eleanor Roosevelt, Bonnie Parker, the list goes on and on throughout history. These archetypes have played an enormous role in how we perceive (conscious or unconscious) and characterize the feminine of today.
The exhibit’s proposed goal is to bring these archetypes (the mother, slut, saint, victim, seductress, goddess) into the public eye in an informative, powerful, and creative manner.
