ART // Blanca Nunez – Female Rage

3 FEB AT 18:00 – 12 FEB AT 19:00

The picture of a woman opening her mouth in complaint is usually identified as undesirable and ugly. There is a clear and renown avatar for the female rage, the myth of Medusa, a human woman who was raped by the god Poseidon and punished by Athena turning her into a monster, a Gorgon.
Soraya Chemaly wrote that anger has a deep purpose: “it is a moral smoke signal, alerting us to inequality and injustice”. “Anger is loaded with information and energy,” Audre Lorde said in 1981. And that ‘s why girls are trained to behave themselves and smile. To avoid them becoming an annoyance.
I am tired of hiding my anger because it makes men uncomfortable. There is so much to be angry about.
I want to honor the art of the baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi, who was a master in giving an acting role to her female subjects, not simple vessels of the basest instincts and other biblical or mythological characters to turn around that vision.To acknowledge our right to be enraged.
