SPACES: Spaces : An Exhibition of Largescale Women's Artworks

15 November - 15 December 2020

The female narrative has always been, and still even now, denied space, which makes this act of boldly ‘occupying space’ all the more meaningful. Each artist in this exhibition makes sense and utilizes scale in different ways. Some treat it as an archive to their bodies, freeing their gesture from the limitation of a small canvas. Some others use space to comment on the industrial and commodification of the female body. 

Through this exhibition, ISA Art and Design is also looking to experiment on space and scale in the virtual realm, with the largest painting by Hadassah Emmerich reaching six metres long in real life, as well as featuring adjusted installation artwork by Arahmaiani.
