Featuring 25 monochromatic works from the Linda Pace Foundation’s permanent collection, “Reclaimed” represents some of the most important female artists of our day.

Thematically, “Reclaimed” is concerned with “the notion of ‘reclaiming’ what’s ours, from our lands and governments to our physical bodies and basic human rights.” As such, it fits perfectly (if slyly) into the context of cultural/historical interrogation that the Tricentennial has, in the best of cases, helped foster.



Organized by local artist Kelly O’Connor, Head of Collections & Communications at the Linda Pace Foundation, “Reclaimed” brings together works by Lara Schnitger, Laura Aguilar, Dorothy Cross, Judy Dater, Annette Messager, Lorraine O’Grady, Robyn O’Neil, Tracey Rose, Kiki Smith and the late Linda Pace herself.

In addition to Friday’s opening reception, the exhibition comes to light through a discussion with Schnitger, curator Justine Ludwig and arts writer Sarah Fisch.



Free, Fri March 9, 7:30-9:30pm, SPACE, 111 Camp St., (210) 227-8400, lindapacefoundation.org.
