Docent-led Tour: Shelia Pepe and Edie Fake
FREE Third Thursday admission from 5:00 – 8:00pm
FREE docent-led tour of Sheila Pepe: Hot Mess Formalism and Edie Fake: Structures Shift.
For over twenty years, Sheila Pepe has constructed large-scale, ephemeral installations and sculpture made out of domestic and industrial fibrous materials. This exhibition, the first mid-career survey of Pepe’s work, examines how the artist often plays with feminist and craft traditions to counter patriarchal notions of recognized or accepted forms of art making. Hot Mess Formalism is organized by the Phoenix Art Museum and is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalog. Sheila Pepe: Hot Mess Formalism is made possible through a grant from The Coby Foundation, Ltd.
January 27 – April 22, 2018
Based in Los Angeles, Edie Fake explores themes of gender, sexuality, and identity through illustration, painting, and comic book design. This exhibition presents a selection of Fake’s meticulously rendered gouache and ink architectural drawings, which focus on facade and ornamentation as a way to understand our bodies, selves, and the importance of the spaces we inhabit.
