The Female Gaze

The Female Gaze, Part Two is a curated project at Cheim + Reid. Including the Sylvia Sleigh painting Paul Rosano in Jacobson Chair from 1971 situates the exhibition in context of the early discussion of female gaze, placing men in positions historically used to represent women. That curatorial stance is less evident with the more observationally focused paintings of Ellen Altfest and Catherine Murphy but its still a great selection of work.
